Chad Grimm enters his fourth season with the Cardinals as an offensive quality control coach after joining the team on 3/2/09.

Born in Fairfax, VA, Grimm played four seasons (2003-06) at Virginia Tech as a backup linebacker and special teams performer where he appeared in 16 career games. After playing in eight games as a freshman on special teams, Grimm appeared in one as a sophomore, four as a junior and three as a senior.

Grimm lettered for three seasons as an outside linebacker and long snapper at Oakton High School (Vienna, VA). He collected over 100 tackles and 5.5 sacks during his senior season including notching 10 tackles, a sack, and a blocked punt that was returned for a touchdown in the regional championship game. He was also an all-district player and state champion in lacrosse at Oakton.

Grimm’s father, Russ, is an assistant coach with the Cardinals and Hall of Fame offensive lineman who played 11 seasons with the Washington Redskins (1981-91). His brother Cody is a safety for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and was selected in the seventh round of the 2010 NFL Draft.

He graduated from Virginia Tech with a bachelor’s degree in Apparel, Housing and Resource Management in 2008.

The All-Pro safety tore his ACL at the end of last season and missed most of camp, but returned for the final week. He picked off three passes in his first three practices and looks like he should be ready for the regular season opener.</p>

    #CardsCamp Biggest Surprise: WR Chris Hubert. The undrafted free agent out of Fayetteville State had little buzz entering training camp, but quickly established himself by regularly getting open and making catches. He shot up the depth chart, and while it would still be a surprise for him to make the team, Hubert has turned heads. Even a practice squad spot would be a solid accomplishment for the diminutive rookie.

    #CardsCamp Best Rookie: CB Brandon Williams. The third round pick has taken the field with the starters throughout camp. While there have been some growing pains, the Cardinals are excited about his progress. Williams is a converted running back who has played corner for only a year, but he's catching on quickly and should make an impact quicker than originally expected.

    #CardsCamp Most Improved: TE Troy Niklas. The former second-round pick was close to bust status after struggling with injuries in his first two seasons, but a healthy training camp has allowed him to make significant strides. Niklas is in the mix for a starting role as he begins to deliver on the vast potential he showed coming out of Notre Dame.

    #CardsCamp MVP: WR Jaron Brown. The Cardinals have a deep group at wideout, and playing time during the regular season for Brown could be sporadic, but he took advantage of regular work in camp. Brown lined up a lot with the first team because of injuries and seemed to come away with one or two big-time catches in every practice. Brown is a fantastic safety valve to have if he's needed regularly during the season.
