center_img GLENDALE, Ariz. — All Bruce Gaston wanted was an opportunity. The Arizona Cardinals called with such an opportunity, and the 22-year-old rookie defensive tackle is making the most of his time in training camp thus far.“Bruce Gaston did a heck of a job on our defensive line — really showed up, blowing up some blockers and made a little name for himself in that scrimmage (Saturday),” said head coach Bruce Arians, who later told Bickley and Marotta on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM that Gaston “is a big, powerful guy. I mean when I saw a couple of offensive lineman come backwards, it’s just like, ‘Whoa, who’s over there?’ I thought it was (Darnell Dockett) or Calais (Campbell) or somebody, and it was (No.) 75. I said, ‘Hmm, I like that.’” Top Stories “Obviously, I was very disappointed, extremely disappointed,” he said. “But I do believe everything happens for a reason, whether we agree with it or not, and I know a lot of times we don’t always agree with it. Even now, I’m still not necessarily agreeing with that decision, but it happened. So, once it happened, all I could do is move forward.”Gaston was one of 15 rookie free agents the Cardinals signed following the draft.“Once I got here,” he said, “it’s like, ‘Okay, it’s over with.’ I’ve just got to strive to be better and be the best and continue to grow. So, from draft weekend to now, I use that as motivation. My goal is (to) prove everybody wrong, show them that, ‘Ah, you know what, we should’ve drafted this cat. Dang, we missed out.’ That’s something I use as motivation as well.”It’s still too early to determine whether or not Gaston will make the 53-man roster, but it’s a good bet he’ll see a considerable amount of work in the preseason, which begins Saturday against the Houston Texans at University of Phoenix Stadium.“Tenacity and just hard work, and try to be as physical as I can be,” he said when asked what he’s shown the coaching staff that’s resulted in his rise up the depth chart. “I want to be a nasty defensive lineman. They always say that in the meeting rooms: We’ve got to be a little bit more nastier, a little bit more vicious. I’m just trying to apply that to my game.” Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impactlast_img read more
