The Arizona Cardinals have been through a lot this offseason.
One of the teams best players went down with an injury, a new head coach was fired, a number of players were traded, and many more players came and went during the offseason.
One of the most exciting things to watch for in the future is how the team performs with LaDian Tomlsion in the lineup.
Tomlison, who turns 36 next month, has been a major reason for Arizona’s success this season.
The Cardinals are the first team in NFL history to win two division titles in a season with their first-round pick, and they won the NFC West and the division with Tomlion.
Tomlinson has played in six postseason games with the Cardinals this year.
He has scored seven touchdowns and has an average of 23.9 yards per reception.
He is the team’s best wide receiver, and it’s tough to argue with Tomlins numbers.
He led the league with seven touchdowns this season, and he also had eight touchdowns in 2015.
Tomlins best game came in Week 5 when he scored on a 25-yard touchdown pass to Kevin Norwood to give the Cardinals a 17-7 lead.
He then had a touchdown run and had a reception on a play that was tipped into the end zone.
Tomlin is one of the best receivers in the NFL, and his play has helped Arizona win games.
The team has had a couple of bad seasons and Tomlions numbers are certainly not his fault.
He had just eight catches for 85 yards and a touchdown last season.
Tomlins career high with nine catches last season was five.
In the playoffs, Tomlins numbers are the reason the Cardinals are still in the playoff hunt, and the only thing that will hurt them in the playoffs is losing him.
Tomls departure would have to happen at some point in the season.
He signed a six-year deal worth $48 million in 2020, but the Cardinals did not pick up his option in 2021.
The organization has had to make a decision on what to do with Tomls contract, but it could happen at any time.
Tomlis is currently on injured reserve with a broken ankle, but he is expected to play against the Cleveland Browns in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday.
The Cardinals will have to rely on rookie quarterback Josh Rosen and veteran wideout Dez Bryant.
Bryant and Rosen are coming off seasons with very good seasons, and both will be tested this season if Tomlson goes down.
The former three-time Pro Bowler had 20 receptions for 273 yards and two touchdowns last season, but only averaged 6.6 yards per catch.
Bryant, who has seen his career numbers decline over the last couple of seasons, had a great season last year and is now in his prime.
Rosen, meanwhile, has a career average of 14.2 yards per play, and has had some strong seasons.
He also had 14 touchdowns last year.
The last time the Cardinals won a Super Bowl, they lost to the Seattle Seahawks.
The franchise hasn’t won a championship since 2000, so this could be a year for the team to get back to winning ways.
The key for the future of the franchise will be how the roster plays in the Super Bowl and who is able to perform when Tomlisons absence is called.
