Arizona Cardinals Home: The official source of the latest Cardinals headlines, news, videos, photos, tickets, rosters and game day information

Ready for their close-up

For a couple of weeks, after many of the OTAs, a player or two or three were brought into the small studio here at the facility for some TV work. I'm sure it wasn't bad, going from the work they were doing in the hot sun to a cool, dark room. The purpose? Filming a series of shots with the players in their element – Reggie Wells setting to block, Kurt Warner throwing passes, Larry Fitzgerald catching passes, Adrian Wilson intercepting the ball – for use in various projects. Fans will see the shots on the Maximum Cardinals TV show, they'll see it at University of Phoenix Stadium on the big video screen, they'll see it in commercials. (Oh, and that's why you don't see Anquan Boldin or Darnell Dockett in such things, like last year's TV spots – the time of year when you film these things is OTAs, so if the player isn't around, he's unable to take part).

I stopped in to see a couple of players do their deal (as you can see with the pix of Wells, Fitz and McFadden below).
