“Had the greatest camp of my career & last Monday I had a accident that could've ended up deadly for me & my family but instead I got the short end of it by having my feet severely burned (2nd degree),” he tweeted on Thursday. “It was literally a freak accident and God spared me to only have these injuries.”

Hamilton joined the Cardinals before the 2021 season and recorded a career-high 38 tackles, more than doubling his previous career-best. His four pass breakups also tied the most he's had in a season.
