The Arizona Cardinals, as expected, put in some waiver claims Sunday morning
Out with the old on Saturday and in with the new on Sunday for the Arizona Cardinals. After getting down to the 53-man roster limit on Saturday, the Cardinals put their number one waiver claim to good use Sunday morning.
The Cardinals announced they have picked up five players from the waiver wire. Of the five claims, two of them were on the offensive line.
The Cardinals claimed offensive linemen Justin Murray from the Oakland Raiders. They also claimed offensive lineman Brett Toth from the Philadelphia Eagles.
They also picked up three players on the defensive side of the ball. The claimed cornerback Kevin Peterson from the Los Angeles Rams, defensive lineman Jonathan Bullard from the Chicago Bears, and safety Charles Washington from the Detroit Lions.
None of the names are going to blow anyone away right now. However the Cardinals have not been shy about wanting to continue to strengthen the offensive and defensive lines. Peterson could be a guy who comes into to take the spot of Robert Alford, who is expected to go on Injured Reserve to start the season but could return.
Also rumored to be happening on Sunday, although not made official by the Cardinals as of yet, is the signing of defensive end Cassius Marsh. He had 5.5 sacks for the Seattle Seahawks in 2018. He was released after the Hawks traded for Jadeveon Clowney on Saturday.
Other than Alford, it will be interesting to see who made the initial 53-man roster on Saturday to be let go on Sunday. That’s a tough business to be in but we all knew it was going to be coming today.
Also later today, the Cardinals are expected to put their 10-man practice squad together. We will likely see a number of recently cut Cardinals on that list.
