TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — The optimistic Arizona Cardinals began work this week under an intense new conditioning coach in their first formal gathering to prepare for the coming season.

After his workout on Thursday, defensive end Darnell Dockett said anything short of the playoffs would be a disappointment for the Cardinals after their 10-6 2013 season under first-year coach Bruce Arians.

One of the two assistants that new strength and conditioning coach Buddy Morris brought with him is Roger Kingdom, the two-time Olympic gold medal-winning hurdler who, among other things, will work on trying to improve the players' speed.

Nearly all of the players showed up for this week's voluntary sessions, and that's a good sign, said Dockett, who is entering his 11h NFL season, all with Arizona.
