Kevin Minter leading the Cardinals defense


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/3/2014) After playing only one snap as a rookie in 2013, Cardinals linebacker Kevin Minter not only lined up with the first-team defense at OTAs but made all the defensive calls according to 910 AM FOX Sports in Phoenix. Minter is expected to fill the middle of the defense for Arizona this season. 

Kevin Minter has big shoes to fill


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/1/2014) With inside linebacker Karlos Dansby leaving Arizona for Cleveland, the Cardinals are counting on 2013 second-round pick Kevin Minter to fill his spot. Minter played special teams last year and got in for only one defensive snap.

“He doesn’t need to be Karlos,” defensive coordinator Todd Bowles told the team's website. “He needs to be Kevin.”

Minter has a reputation as a run stuffer, and coaches are confident he'll acquit himself well, if not fully compensate for Dansby's loss. Minter said he learned a lot from Dansby, who had 122 tackles, 6.5 sacks and 19 pass breakups last season.

“It was a little bit frustrating last year, but at the same time, you couldn’t help but learn,” Minter said. “Karlos treated it like a business. He came to work every day to work, whether it was eating the right things, watching film, doing extra workouts. He was a great role model. With what he left, I feel like I can pick up the slack.”


Kevin Minter to elevate to Cards' starting lineup

Minter made just four tackles last season over 13 games, basically relegated to special-teams reps.
