Jones: Cardinals defense 'loaded' after draft, free agency

Chandler Jones was a one-man wrecking crew for the Cardinals last season, finishing with a career-high 19 sacks and leading the NFL with eight forced fumbles.

The 30-year-old linebacker and two-time All-Pro is clearly one of the league's best defensive players. He's also proof that one man - no matter how good - isn't enough to build an elite defense.

Even with Jones disrupting multiple plays per game, Arizona's defense was among the worst in the NFL. It's the biggest reason the Cardinals finished with a 5-10-1 record despite a roster that had an entertaining and productive offense led by rookie quarterback Kyler Murray.
