Cardinals And Saints To Kick-Off NFL Preseason In Hall Of Fame Game

For all of you NFL fans desperate for any signs of life, today was not your day as it added one more day to the calendar between you and the start of the NFL season. But take heart, August 5 has been set as the first official (well, preseason) NFL action just over five months from now with the announced Pro Football Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio between the New Orleans Saints and the Arizona Cardinals.

That weekend will also feature Willie Roaf among the candidates who will receive their Hall of Fame induction as voted on earlier this winter. While the NFL talk hasn't died down, it becomes slow as molasses over the early summer months, so it's nice to know we won't have to wait too long into August before kickoff officially begins.
