Just another day at the office for the Arizona Cardinals. Today’s work though included making some roster moves, getting down to the 75-man roster limit, as the team prepares for its final preseason game on Thursday against the Denver Broncos at Invesco Field in Denver.
Amongst the moves the Cardinals made on Tuesday was the signing of tight end Richard Quinn. Quinn was released by the Cincinnati Bengals just a couple of days ago. As I mentioned yesterday, I expected the Cardinals to go find a tight end with the injuries and lack of production at the position. I wouldn’t be surprised if they keep looking.
Before the signing of Quinn, the Cards were at 76 men on the roster. That mean they had to release two players to get to the 75-man limit. They released safety Javon Harris and tight end Mickey Shuler.
Harris was stuck in a defensive backfield that will see a few cuts due to the depth the team currently has. Shuler was just another body in camp and really never had a shot to make this team, even given the injuries the Cards had suffered with Rob Housler and Jeff King. King returned to practice on Monday. Housler’s status is uncertain for week one against the St. Louis Rams.
