FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) -- About two minutes into his first practice as an Arizona Cardinal, Kevin Kolb lofted a long pass to Todd Heap.

There was no defense on the play. The players weren't even wearing their helmets yet, but seeing that smooth, on-the-money delivery from Arizona's new quarterback was a sight the Cardinals
coaches, fans and players had been waiting for a week to see.

What followed late Thursday afternoon was one of the most spirited, full-pad workouts in memory for the Cardinals, punctuated by a live, full-speed goal-line drill dominated by Kolb's offense.

Twice he handed off to Beanie Wells for touchdown runs, but the most impressive play was a fake handoff followed by an across the field perfect throw to another new tight end, Jeff King, for a score.
