06/01/14 - LB Kevin Minter has been given the initial task of trying to replace Karlos Dansby as the Cardinals' signal-calling inside linebacker and coach Bruce Arians said he likes what he is seeing from the former LSU standout.
"He's a different person," Arians said. "Checking back with his coaches at LSU, his freshman year was kind of what he was like last year; he was like lost. His sophomore year he was thrown into a leadership role and really relished it. He's done a really nice job right now, accepting the role he's got and trying to expand it.
"It's a big responsibility. You're the signal-caller, you're the leader of the defense. He's got very big shoes to fill. Karlos was very dynamic in what he did last year. (Defensive coordinator) Todd (Bowles) schemed very well for him, just like he will for Kevin and whoever else that will be in there."

They were willing to trade down because they had Minter ranked higher than Te'o. I'm a physical player," he said. "I'm passionate. I'm about business. I feel like I'll be a great asset to this team. I play balls to the wall on every play." - The Sports Xchange
