The 36-year-old Suggs spent each of his first 16 NFL seasons with the Baltimore Ravens after being selected by the Ravens with the 10th overall pick in the 2003 NFL Draft. He is the NFL's active sack leader and is the league's only active player with at least 900 tackles, 100 sacks and 30 forced fumbles. He is a seven-time Pro Bowl selection and was the 2011 NFL Defensive Player of the Year.

The 25-year-old Hundley is a Chandler native who starred at Chandler HS before joining UCLA in 2011. He guided the Bruins to back-to-back 10-win seasons in 2013 and '14. He was selected by the Green Bay Packers in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL Draft and spent three seasons in Green Bay before being traded to the Seattle Seahawks before the 2018 season.

Hundley became just the second Arizona-born quarterback to play in an NFL conference championship game when he replaced Aaron Rodgers late in the Packers' loss to the Atlanta Falcons in the NFC Championship Game in January 2017. Former ASU star Danny White was the first.

Hundley started nine games for the Packers in the 2017 season when Rodgers went down with a season-ending injury.

Hundley's successor at UCLA was current Cardinals QB Josh Rosen, who played three seasons for the Bruins before being selected by the Cardinals with the 10th overall pick in the 2018 draft.

Last week, the Cardinals released backup QB Mike Glennon after one season with the team.
