Joe Banner spoke to Kiley and Booms on 92.3 the Fan today on a wide variety of topics, but I was especially interested when Kevin Kiley asked him about Tyrann Mathieu, AKA the Honey Badger. It’s not that
“I think that we thought he was a very good player,” Banner said. “We were very concerned – as others were – about some off-field history. If he overcomes that I think it’s great for him and great for the Cardinals. I think in these areas we won’t be perfect, but we’re going to try and play the odds of sticking with high character players that are driven, smart and very determined.”
Joe Banner continued, but that was the bulk of what he said. Kiley followed up with a question about Armonty Bryant, which Banner defended by saying it was a seventh round pick.
Really listen to the whole thing. Kiley and Booms did a very good job with Joe Banner and even if you don’t agree with him, Banner does a very good job of not avoiding questions and trying to answer.
