It's years in the making from his days of tearing it up for the Sabercats and the Cardinals was a team he admired.

He hopes to learn from future Hall of Famer Larry Fitzgerald.

Helping his transition to the team is former Aggies teammates Brandon Williams and Ricky Seals-Jones Saguaro High teammate D.J. Foster.

Kirk picked No. 13 as his jersey number, which was Kurt Warner's former number.
