Another Chance For Greg Little

Greg Little is in town again for another tryout with the Cardinals.

Actually, he never left.

The veteran wide receiver has participated in the first two days of minicamp with the Cardinals. He was originally here as a tryout player at the team's rookie minicamp in May, but an injury torpedoed his chance at getting signed.

"I just had to get over a lower leg injury and get back healthy," Little said. "They just told me that they'd re-evaluate me, so I knew I had the opportunity to come back. I stayed in town and continued to work. I'm just happy to be back."

The 29-year-old Little is a former second-round pick of the Browns who averaged 52 catches and 607 yards in his first three seasons. He hasn't played in an NFL game since 2014 and hasn't been on a team since being released by the Bills before the 2016 season.

Despite the layoff, Little likes his chances at latching on with the Cardinals for training camp.

"I'm confident in my ability, and they just want to see that I'm healthy and able to move around," Little said. "Hopefully it will go in the direction that I think and I'll be working through the summer and through the fall to earn a job here."

Little said he's trying to show he can be useful on special teams as well as offense to improve the likelihood of sticking.

"That's the most important thing, to show I'm a football player," Little said. "I can block. I can run. I can tackle. I can catch. Just try to add value in any ways possible and show that my athletic talents can be used all over the field."
