A crush of reporters surrounded wide receiver Christian Kirk on Friday afternoon, competing for his attention following the first day of rookie minicamp.
The Cardinals’ second-round pick may want to get used to it.
It’s not only the media that will be clamoring for Kirk for the foreseeable future, but everyone in his orbit. That’s what happens when you return to the scene of your legendary boyhood triumphs, now as a member of the hometown NFL franchise.
Kirk Womens David Pastrnak Jersey has money in his pocket and friends scattered throughout the valley. The 21-year-old is mature, so it’s not like anyone expects http://www.shopbruinsofficialauthentic.com/David_Pastrnak_Jersey_Adidas him to go off the rails, but the slightest reorganization of priorities can make it that much tougher to succeed in the NFL.

While Cash is still in the early stages of developing relationships with his new teammates, he has no problem barking out instructions as the defense breaks the huddle before each snap.
When I first signed with the Cardinals, they were looking for me to be that leader – to help communicate and get people lined up, said Cash, who was with Carolina for parts of the past two seasons. It took me awhile to learn the defense (in Carolina), but now that I have a pretty good grasp of it, I can bring others along with me.
