Arizona Cardinals' Dennis Gardeck welcomes opportunity to start at OLB: 'I've been ready'

It’s been five years since Dennis Gardeck beat the odds to make it in the NFL with the Cardinals despite being a relatively unknown from the University of Sioux Falls, a Division II school in South Dakota. Although he is an underdog no longer, you won’t ever find Gardeck patting himself on the back.He’s too petrified the dream could end at any moment.That’s one of the many qualities coach Kliff Kingsbury admires about the 6-foot, 232-pound outside linebacker and special teams star from tin...

It’s been five years since Dennis Gardeck beat the odds to make it in the NFL with the Cardinals despite being a relatively unknown from the University of Sioux Falls, a Division II school in South Dakota. Although he is an underdog no longer, you won’t ever find Gardeck patting himself on the back.

He’s too petrified the dream could end at any moment.

That’s one of the many qualities coach Kliff Kingsbury admires about the 6-foot, 232-pound outside linebacker and special teams star from tiny Lake in the Hills, Illinois.

“Yeah, it’s insane,” Kingsbury said of Gardeck’s personal rags-to-riches story. “And he’s one of those guys that he still doesn’t really like think that he’s made it. Like he thinks I’m going to cut him every day. He’ll barely talk to me.

“But that’s what drives him. He’s always on edge and always trying to get better. He has a great appreciation for what he’s done, but his story, where he came from and how he made it, it’s a great story.”

Gardeck wouldn’t say if he purposely tries to avoid Kingsbury out of fear of possibly being released. He just thinks if an NFL player starts getting comfortable, bad things can happen. Once you think you’ve made it and feel like your spot is secure, that’s when you’re at your most vulnerable.

“It’s always my No.1 goal just to make the 53-man roster,” he said. “I try not to ever get too far because it can be gone.”

Gardeck is stepping into his most important season yet with a chance to replace Chandler Jones as Arizona’s starting outside linebacker opposite Markus Golden. He isn’t the Cardinals’ only option as they also have Deon Kennard, Victor Dimukeje, Jessie Lemonier and three rookie draft picks – Cameron Thomas, Myjai Sanders and Jesse Luketa – competing for playing time.

But considering what Gardeck did in 2020 when Jones missed most of the season with a torn biceps, it would be foolish not to give him the first look at starter. He didn’t get his first defensive snap until Week 5, but he had seven sacks in just 92 total snaps before tearing his ACL in Week 15.

“You can’t replace Chandler Jones. He’s a Hall of Fame rusher,” Cardinals defensive coordinator Vance Joseph said. “But as a group, we can. With more turns, Dennis can help us. He is obviously undersized, but he’s a pit bull and he’s powerful and he’s fast.”

Gardeck finished with a career-high 23 tackles in a part-time role last season in his return from knee surgery, but he produced zero sacks. A year healthier and a year stronger in a larger role should change that. Ask him if he’s ready and he’ll tell you how ready he is.

“I’ve been ready, so there hasn’t been no shift in the mindset since Chandler’s gone,” Gardeck said. “It’s always been when my number is called, be ready to go, so maybe that time is sooner but mentally, I’ve been in that frame of mind.

“Everybody wants to start. There’s nobody that comes into this league that I’ve met that is just content with special teams. I love special teams. I think it’s the most football part of football. But the goal is to always be a starter on your respective side of the ball.”

Kingsbury was asked if Gardeck has the inside track to the second starting job at outside ’backer and he wouldn’t come right out and say yes. Instead, he talked about how confident Gardeck seems to be in his surgically repaired knee and how fast he’s been moving around.

“We saw what he did the last time when Chan got hurt and he got his reps,” Kingsbury said. “We’re going to find ways to utilize him. I don’t know to what extent, but I like what I’ve seen this offseason and he’s always been productive when he’s played.”

When he’s not working on his own game, trying to make quicker decisions and fine-turning his pass-rushing techniques, Gardeck said he’s doing what he can to help bring the young outside linebackers up to speed. They’re all in this together, he points out, so there’s no room for selfishness.

“I’ve been in the room for a while now, so I know the culture, I know everything, so it’s bringing them up to speed,” he said. “It’s about having the best 11 on the field. We drafted these young guys to make an impact on the team, so as a veteran in the room, it’s time to bring them up to speed and to compete and to work with them.”

Gardeck’s rehab from ACL surgery went just like the way he plays – fast and furious. It enabled him to play in 14 games last season. It also taught him a lot about himself.

“I think the biggest thing I learned personally is I don’t like to guarantee,” he said. “When I first tore my ACL, I was going through that and I was like, ‘I guarantee I’m coming back stronger’ and this and that and I found that it’s so much more inspiring and it pushes me so much more but understanding that it might not. It might be done. It might be over.

“I think that’s why being on the 53 is my No.1 goal. It’s understanding the sense of urgency and that kind of pressure. I thrive under it. That’s the biggest thing I’ve learned. It’s removing all guarantees and understanding there’s a possibility that this is done or there’s a possibility that I’m not the starter or there’s a possibility of whatever and you’ve got to get after it to make sure that you get it done.”

PHOENIX — Governor Doug Ducey today released the following statement on the conclusion of the 2022 Arizona Legislature:

“Over the last eight years, I’ve worked hand-in-hand with the good women and men of the Arizona Legislature to tackle the challenges facing our state, and pass policies to position Arizona as the land of opportunity. I am so grateful for their partnership.

“The policies we put in place over the past eight years made this success possible — policies that promoted economic growth, cut taxes, reduced regulations and made targeted investments to build a stronger, more resilient Arizona.

“Today, with the conclusion of the second session of the 55th Arizona Legislature, we are reaffirming our commitment to those policies and sending a clear message about our state’s future: we’re ready, and we’re unstoppable.

“This year’s legislative session is sure to be one to remember — and not only because of the historic bipartisan budget agreement. We took record revenues and invested in priorities that directly impact the lives of our fellow Arizonans: education, public safety, border security, health care, roadways paying off our debts, and saving for the future.

“This session we truly delivered. We invested in Arizona’s future, accelerating the expansion of Interstate 10. We enacted the most expansive school choice legislation in the nation. We cut red tape so critical health care workers can do their jobs unimpeded. We strengthened election integrity. We protected victims’ rights. We cracked down on crimes committed at the border. We kept our promises.

“I’m very grateful to Senate President Karen Fann and House Speaker Rusty Bowers for their unyielding partnership and leadership this session, as well as their dedication to public service. I’m also grateful to each and every member of the Arizona Legislature for their commitment to our state. I am thankful for their work.”

Here are some of the highlights of Governor Ducey’s final legislative session:

EDUCATION

GOVERNMENT THAT WORKS

INFRASTRUCTURE

PUBLIC SAFETY

HEALTH CARE

CHILD & FAMILY SUPPORT

ELECTION INTEGRITY

VETERANS

In March, the governor signed legislation to ensure seamless education opportunities for active military and create scholarships for veterans’ family members.

'We wanted to put Phoenix on the map for fine Indian dining': What to expect at Feringhee

Feringhee Modern Indian Cuisine, a new fine dining, woman-owned restaurant, is opening in Chandler on June 23.

“We, being foreigners, are proud of who we are and wanted to bring our rich culture to the Valley,” said owner and founder Madhavi Reddy of the name Feringhee, which means foreigner. Reddy also owns Pastries N Chaat restaurants in Scottsdale and Tempe along with Saffron Indian Grocery N Kitchen markets in Scottsdale, Phoenix and San Antonio.

At the new restaurant, she hopes to combine her industry knowledge and education in agriculture and marketing to create a new dining experience.

“We wanted to put Phoenix on the map for fine Indian dining,” said Reddy.

What's on the menu at Feringhee Modern Indian Cuisine?

The menu, which covers northern and southern Indian cuisines, puts a contemporary twist on traditional Indian dishes, both in flavor and presentation. For example, there is an avocado chutney and a hummus made with Indian spices on the menu.

“No one makes chutney with avocado,” said Reddy, who added that the restaurant can accommodate dietary restrictions, such as vegan and gluten-free.

At the helm are two award-wining chefs with a wealth of culinary knowledge.

Chef Sujan Sarkar has worked in restaurants around the world and was named chef of the Year 2016 by Times Food Guide and opened Ek Bar, India’s first artisanal cocktail bar in 2015, which was awarded the 2016 Best New Cocktail Bar in The World by Condé Nast Traveler UK.

Chef Karan Mittal has experience working in Michelin-starred restaurants, and his accolades include being named Rising Star of the Year 2018 by Food & Wine Magazine Ireland and Best Young Chef for fine dining in 2018 and Best Young Chef Gold Medal in 2019 by the Irish Curry Awards.

The menu includes the likes of tandoori duck seekh kebab, Himalayan lamb chops and Bengali or Kasundi shrimp. Keralan Quilon-style fried chicken is served with peanut chutney, avocado pachadi and moringa.

In addition to the creative food menu, which uses local and seasonal ingredients combined with Indian spices, Feringhee offers a cocktail menu of drinks infused with Indian ingredients such as saffron, jamun, sweet black plum and jaggery, an unrefined cane sugar.

“We have a shared desire to disrupt the Indian-based food service industry here in the Valley,” said Reddy.

The 8,000-square-foot restaurant is now open and features a large dining room, private dining room and patio seating for 145 to 160 people, along with a banquet hall that will open soon. Small plates range from $13 to $19, large plates are $22 to $32 and sides are priced from $4 to $7. The restaurant is located by the Chandler Fashion Center, at the corner of south Chandler Village Drive and west Frye Road. Dinner reservations are available now through OpenTable.

Details: 3491 W. Frye Road, Chandler. 480-534-7178, feringhee.com.

Hours: Closed on Mondays, 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Tuesdays through Thursdays, 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Sundays.
