The Arizona Cardinals have one preseason game left on Thursday at the Denver Broncos
The Arizona Cardinals say no one’s job is safe but we already know a couple of them are. Cornerback Justin Bethel has won the second cornerback starting job and Drew Stanton has won the backup quarterback job.
That doesn’t mean all is said and done. Thursday night could still prove the make or break some spots. On Sunday I discussed five guys who could end up being cut. These guys are all on the bubble.
What we see on the 90-man roster right now, which will transition into a 53-man roster by this weekend, could include players not currently on the roster. That typically happens every year as other teams make players at certain positions available.
For the most part though what you see is what you are going to get. There won’t be much better out there than already on the roster. Most the 53 players will come from this group.
There are various reasons why teams will let certain players go. Sometimes it truly is a numbers game. Other times though there are deficiencies. It is those differences the Cardinals must weed through to determine if said player is a right fit here or not.
