As 25 rookies made their rounds, some of them ended up in the room of a young girl named Bethany, who was recovering from appendix surgery. They piled into a room with her, blasting Swift’s catchy ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ as she sang along with the microphone.
“It was very good. We did her backup, played some instruments, it was a good time,” first-round draft pick Jonathan Cooper said after the fact.
According to the team’s website, this was one of the first times the team saw each other in a non-field capacity. And with the severity of the illnesses awaiting them at the hospital, many players saw a side of their teammates they won’t see often.
“We are able to see each other outside of being competitive and being those tough guys,” defensive back Tyrann Mathieu adds. “We kinda see people break down and kinda really see people show their hearts.”
The image of big, strong football players dancing around to Taylor Swift will be a lasting memory — not only for Bethany, but also for the Cardinals rookies.
