Cardinals general manager Steve Keim praises owner Michael Bidwill for his passion and aggression

Arizona Cardinals general manager Steve Keim and owner Michael Bid have had a good relationship for some time. Keim likes the way Bidwill runs his landlord business.

He praised Bidwill when he appeared on The Pat McAfee Show on Wednesday. What stands out about Keim is Bidwill’s passion.

This probably stems from the fact that he was in the team since he was young. The Cardinals have been in the Bidwill family for almost a century.

“He grew up around the game,” Keim said of Bidwill. “He was a guy who cleaned jockstraps in training camp when he was a kid.”

Bidwill wants the team to be successful and involved, which Keim sees as a positive.

“He just understands,” Keim added. “He’s extremely aggressive. When we talk about getting players, he flies his plane and gets them. It’s great to have that kind of passion. A guy who comes into the office every day.

Bidwill flew to Hollywood Brown so he could be introduced to fans right after the trade was announced. He flew into JJ Watt when he signed. Bidwill likes to meet top players when signing their contracts.

Not all moves have been perfect, but Bidwill has a good relationship with the players. It surely helps to sign players in free agency when the owner is willing to go all out to land a player.
