The Arizona Cardinals aren't just an elite NFL team; they're one of the most fun for us media types to cover.
Case in point: Players often mess with each other during media interviews, such as when Patrick Peterson interrupted a Larry Fitzgerald Q & A last season to ask his own questions.
On Sunday, safety Tyrann Mathieu and linebacker Deone Bucannon decided to have some fun at the expense of linebacker Kevin Minter, who was doing a one-on-one interview in the Cards' locker room before Sunday afternoon's training camp session.
Bucannon stood behind the reporters for a over a minute, nodding along with what Minter was saying in an effort to break his teammate's concentration.
It wasn't long before the Honey Badger decided to join in.

Credit to Minter for avoiding the distraction and finishing the interview like the pro he is. Of course, that didn't stop Mathieu from razzing Minter about it afterwards, followed by a Minter response.
