The Temple linebacker elevated his stock dramatically during the pre-draft process, and his meteoric rise led to Arizona selecting him No. 13 overall. Reddick and the Cardinals agreed to the standard four-year deal with a team option for a fifth year.
The rookie has been working out as the “money linebacker” thus far this offseason, per the team’s official website. Deone Bucannon, who thrived in the unique position last season in the desert, underwent offseason ankle surgery, so Reddick has been getting the first-team reps. Playing alongside veteran linebacker Karlos Dansby also has been a major boost toward shortening his learning curve.
“I’m looking at [Bucannon’s absence] as an opportunity to learn as much as I can as fast as I can to make me a better player,” Reddick said. “Being able to go out and soak in all those reps next to Karlos, that’s what I look forward to. Listen to [Dansby], view the way he takes control of the defense and the way he communicates.
All teams may hold one mandatory minicamp for veteran players in Phase Three of offseason workouts, per the collective bargaining agreement. No live contact is permitted during Phase Three, but 7-on-7, 9-on-7, and 11-on-11 drills are allowed.
All players currently under contract are required to attend minicamp or could be subject to fines at the team’s discretion (franchise tagged players who have not signed their tender are not under contract and therefore not subject to fines). Per the CBA, unexcused failure to report to or unexcused departure from mandatory offseason minicamp can result in daily fines, totaling $80,405 for missing all three days — $13,400 for missing the first day and escalating fines each day absent.
The 30 other NFL clubs will hold their mandatory minicamps next week.

On Wednesday, he declared that Brown had a hamstring issue.
NFL Network’s Omar Ruiz said Arians broached the topic to explain why Brown hasn’t been visible during portions of minicamp practice open to the media.
While it’s a minor setback, the Cardinals will certainly keep their eyes on the speedy wide receiver. Brown struggled with hamstring issues last season on top of a sickle-cell trait issue and a cyst on his spine, which was removed in January.
Since then, the narrative has improved for a player who caught 65 balls for 1,003 yards and seven touchdowns back in 2015. As last year showed, he is a game breaker critical for unlocking Arians’ air raid system to its full potential.
