The fun has already started with the Arizona Cardinals picking up three off of waivers Sunday morning

Before we could even stroke any keys this morning, the Arizona Cardinals were already off to the races and making their waiver claims.  A day after putting their 53-man roster together, the Cardinals have claimed three players off waivers according to Pro Football Talk.

Two of the players they claimed are offensive linemen.  With 10 already on the roster, it is an intriguing decision.  They claimed tackle Blaine Causell from the Carolina Panthers and guard Jeremy Vujnovich from the Indianapolis Colts.

The offensive line wasn’t the only position finding claims from the Cardinals on Sunday morning.  They also claimed defensive tackle Garrison Smith from the Atlanta Falcons.

Movement like this was expected.  Many teams have already been at the waiver wire making their claims as well on Sunday.

With five undrafted rookie free agents making the team and some other questionable cuts on Saturday, it only made sense the Cardinals would not be done yet.  We will later find out how their practice squad comes together as well.

There has been no announcement from the team on these moves yet, only from Pro Football Talk, who has been tweeting transactions all morning.  With additions will come subtractions.

Stay tuned as it is likely to be a couple of busy days around the NFL and in the Cardinals front office as they try to get rosters finalized.  The NFL week starts on Monday as the Cardinals will prepare to face the Washington Redskins in Glendale next Sunday afternoon.

It will be interesting to see if the Cardinals target any of the receivers that were let go on Saturday.  There still seems to be some that believe they aren’t done with that room yet.

Next. Cardinals should make extending Johnson a priority. dark

While it was nice to see someone like Trent Sherfield make the initial 53-man roster, we’ll see if that sticks.  There could be a veteran out there the Cardinals like more.  That’s only speculation though.
