Kevin Minter has big shoes to fill
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

With inside linebacker Karlos Dansby leaving Arizona for Cleveland, the Cardinals are counting on 2013 second-round pick Kevin Minter to fill his spot. Minter played special teams last year and got in for only one defensive snap.

“He doesn’t need to be Karlos,” defensive coordinator Todd Bowles told the team's website. “He needs to be Kevin.”

Minter has a reputation as a run stuffer, and coaches are confident he'll acquit himself well, if not fully compensate for Dansby's loss. Minter said he learned a lot from Dansby, who had 122 tackles, 6.5 sacks and 19 pass breakups last season.

“It was a little bit frustrating last year, but at the same time, you couldn’t help but learn,” Minter said. “Karlos treated it like a business. He came to work every day to work, whether it was eating the right things, watching film, doing extra workouts. He was a great role model. With what he left, I feel like I can pick up the slack.”

Kevin Minter to elevate to Cards' starting lineup
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

In the wake of losing Karlos Dansby to the Browns via free agency, the Cardinals are expected to give second-year linebacker Kevin Minter the first crack at starting as an inside linebacker in 2014. Bruce Arians said as much on Wednesday according to the official team website. 

Minter made just four tackles last season over 13 games, basically relegated to special-teams reps.
