Cardinals, Saints will play in Hall of Fame Game

The Arizona Cardinals will face the New Orleans Saints in the Pro Football Hall of Fame Game Aug. 5.

Darren Urban, who writes for Arizona’s team Web site, announced the news via Twitter. It had already been reported the Saints will be in Canton, Ohio, for the weekend to see longtime Saints offensive lineman Willie Roaf inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

The date means the Saints and Cardinals will both play five preseason games. They will also open training camp about a week ahead of the other 30 teams because of the extra game. Will the Cardinals have an extra game in order to get comfortable with a new quarterback who previously played in Indianapolis? Only time will tell.
