Cardinals Make Their Cuts, a Few Surprises


The Arizona Cardinals made their cuts to get down to the 53-man roster on Friday afternoon.  Some of them were surprises, most of them were not.  However they didn’t waste any time in getting it done.  Here is the list:

CB Fred Bennett, S Jared Campbell, C Ben Claxton, QB Brodie Croyle, LB Will Davis, P Ben Graham, CB Marshay Green, DE Kenny Iwebema, OT Cliff Louis, NT Ricky Lumpkin, FB Reagan Maui’a, DE Jeremy Navarre, WR Aaron Nichols, CB Bryant Nnabuife, LB Cyril Obiozor, C Kris O’Dowd, G Tom Pestock, RB William Powell, TE Steve Skelton, LB Kendall Smith, LB Pago Togafau, CB Thad Turner, S Matt Ware, WR Isaiah Williams, OT D.J. Young

Graham, Bennett, Maui’a, Ware, and Williams are probably the five biggest surprises to me.  Many of these guys probably saw this coming though.  You may end up seeing some of the guys again, so don’t completely close the door on these players.  Just look at Maui’a.  He was cut in the final preseason cut last year and was back by week two,

Graham to me is probably the biggest cut of them all.  His cut means that Dave Zastudil will be the new Cards punter.
