    Cardinals LB Sean Weatherspoon looks to rebound from injury

    Linebacker Sean Weatherspoon was signed by the Cardinals in free agency this offseason. He has high hopes that he'll rebound after rupturing his achilles tendon in 2014 while with the Falcons, according to the team's official website. "Once it happened, I figured I'd come back from this," Weatherspoon said. "That's what I told myself when I was sitting there down and out looking at everything that was happening. I was down, but I was ultimately thinking about the comeback." In addition to missing all of the 2014 season, the 27-year-old missed all but seven games in 2013. The linebacker is optimistic that the time off could benefit him on the field. "Mike Peterson played linebacker in the league for a long time, and he was a guy who took me under his wing in my rookie year in the league," Weatherspoon said. "He would come out and he would make some plays, and I'd be like, 'Man, how you still do that after so much time off and not even being the starter anymore, but you're still able to just go out there and make it happen?' He said, 'It's just like riding a bike.' "I just have to get back to practicing a little bit more and being on that steady routine, but I definitely think it saved my legs being off of them for the past two years. I'm just looking forward to going out there and trying to reestablish myself as being the player that I am." In four years with the Falcons, Weatherspoon recorded 290 total tackles, eight sacks, 15 passes defensed, two interceptions and one forced fumble.
