With the Arizona Cardinals getting down to the 75-man limit on Monday, well ahead of the Tuesday 1pm deadline, now we can turn our attention to what the final 53-man roster may look like after Thursday night’s game against the San Diego Chargers.

Offense:  The offense has seen mixed results so far this preseason.  The first team looked great in game one against the Houston Texans.  The second and third team offenses also looked very good in that game.  In the Minnesota Vikings game, the first team looked decent.  They had their moments.  The second team was just alright and the third team didn’t look very good but the big reason for that was dealt with today in the release of quarterback Ryan Lindley.  Last night in the loss to the Cincinnati Bengals each offensive string struggled but the second team connected on a touchdown pass from quarterback Drew Stanton to receiver John Brown.

Predicted roster:

QB: Carson Palmer, Drew Stanton, Logan Thomas

RB: Andre Ellington, Jonathan Dwyer, Stepfan Taylor, Robert Hughes

WR: Larry Fitzgerald, Michael Floyd, John Brown, Ted Ginn, Jaron Brown

LT: Jared Veldheer, Nate Potter

LG: Ted Larsen, Jonathan Cooper

C: Lyle Sendlein, John Estes

RG: Paul Fanaika, Philip Blake

RT: Bobby Massie, Bradley Sowell

TE: John Carlson, Troy Niklas, Darren Fells, Rob Housler
