The Arizona Cardinals hope Tom Brady is granted another chance to fight his four-game suspension.
The New England Patriots quarterback would miss the season’s opener on Sunday Night Football against he Cards if the suspension is upheld. On Monday, Brady’s lawyers filed a petition for a rehearing of his suspension case against the NFL before the U.S. Second Circuit Court of Appeals in New York.
In a non-official poll taken by the Arizona Republic jersey, the majority of Cardinals hope Brady earns the hearing and has his suspension lifted or at least delayed.

“I wouldn’t be a competitor if I said ‘not,'” inside linebacker Deone Bucannon said. “I’m a competitor and he’s one of the best to ever do it with NFL China jerseys wholesale. It would be awesome to play against him.
“I want them at their best because we’re definitely going to be at our best.”
It wasn’t just players who hope Brady wins his appeal — you’d expect NFLPA members to mostly back their union brethren. Coaches also hope the Pats quarterback is on the field.
“I don’t want any excuses,” offensive coordinator/offensive line coach Harold Goodwin said. “The level we’re at right now as an organization, as a team — because we think we’re one of the best teams with wholesale authentic jerseys in the National Football League — hey, when we’re playing another team we want them to be at full capacity, too.
“Down the road, I don’t want to hear ‘coulda, woulda, shoulda,’ because they’re missing a guy. Obviously, I would like Tom to play.”
Still, some like Larry Fitzgerald jersey, in his seemingly endless wisdom, cautioned to be careful what you wish for.

The Cards grabbed talented but troubled defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche with the No. 29 overall pick.
One of the top interior talents in the 2016 draft, Nkemdiche tumbled down draft boards after questions about his motor and off-the-field questions, stemming from falling out of a fourth-floor window last December.
“There were some things I did off the field and these were repercussions,” Nkemdiche told NFL Media’s Deion Sanders when asked why he fell on draft day.
Nkemdiche couldn’t have landed in a better place. He’ll get plenty of opportunities on a D-line that needed and infusion of talent and cheap jerseys. Coach Bruce Arians is also an exceptional motivator, who keeps his players in line.
The Cards proved they could help troubled prospect overcome question marks and release his talent, as they did with Tyrann Mathieu in 2013.
If Nkemdiche has his head on straight, the Cards’ weak point could be a strength in 2016. Arizona added Chandler Jones via trade this offseason and Calais Campbell continues to be one of the most dominant interior defenders game in and game out.
The Cardinals are shoring up depth at the linebacker position.

Arizona has signed former Chargers linebacker Donald Butler jersey, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday, according to sources informed of the move.
Butler was released by San Diego in March, just two years after signing a lucrative seven-year, $51.8 million contract with the Chargers. The move saved San Diego $9.41 million in salary-cap space, but sent Butler packing unexpectedly. A fixture on the Chargers’ defense for four years after being drafted in 2011, he had his worst showing in 2015, totaling just 43 combined tackles over a full 16-game slate.
Butler will hope to factor into the Cardinals’ plans at inside linebacker, the defense’s weakest position group. He will compete for a starting role with desert veterans Kevin Minter and Deone Bucannon jersey.
Both clubs have accomplished, veteran starters in Carson Palmer and Philip Rivers, but with both in their mid-30s, the time could be right for either club to acquire a young quarterback to develop in an apprentice role. With just 10 career starts at OSU, and after losing his starting role with the Buckeyes midseason last year, Jones is considered authentic jerseys and more of a developmental NFL prospect than an immediate answer for a team in need of a starter. As such, he could be a strong fit with either team.
The Cardinals have also had a private workout with Jones, as have the Buffalo Bills. With Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor having just one more season left on his contract, Buffalo could be yet another destination where Jones could spend his rookie year learning from the bench, and preparing for what could potentially be a better opportunity to play in Year 2.
For a developmental prospect, however, the price could be steep. At 6-foot-5 and 250 pounds, and with highly impressive arm strength, Jones could be chosen as high as the second round, according to NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah.
