The Arizona Cardinals made their wave of cuts on Monday morning to get to the 75-man limit teams had until Tuesday at 1pm Arizona time to get to.  In all, the Cards released 13 players on Monday.


Jay Feely – K

Ryan Lindley – QB

Max Starks – T

JoJo Dickson – LB

Tom Draheim – C

Brandon Sermons – CB

Damien Thigpen – RB

Kevin Ozier – WR

Reggie Dunn – WR

Justin Renfrow – DT

Orhian Johnson – S

Derrell Johnson – LB

Keenan Clayton – LB

Not a ton of surprises here, although I stated last night I thought the Cards might wait until Friday to cut Feely and Lindley, after the last preseason game Thursday night against the San Diego Chargers. Their releases though were not a surprise based on their preseason performances. Ozier, a local product from Arizona State was a guy I thought would make it further earlier in camp but he did not play well and dropped the last pass of the game last night, causing a turnover.  Starks never materialized on the line after being signed a couple of weeks ago.

The next cut date is by Saturday at 1pm Arizona time.  I suspect we will see the next cuts to 53 though sometime Friday.
