Arizona Cardinals waive three who made initial 53-man roster
As we expected, the Arizona Cardinals waived three players who made the initial 53-man roster on Saturday
With the waiver wire pickups we reported on a little while ago, we knew the Arizona Cardinals would have to make room for them by releasing some players. They did just that Sunday.
They waived running back T.J. Logan and linebackers Tanner Vallejo and Pete Robertson. For Logan, it ends two up and down seasons for him since being selected in the 2017 NFL Draft.
The back came to Arizona with high hopes and showed his potential early on. He had a really good return in the Pro Football Hall of Fame game in 2017 only to break his wrist and placed on Injured Reserve, quickly ending his rookie season.
However he had a decent training camp and preseason this year and was expected to be the number three back behind David Johnson and Chase Edmonds. However the team has elected to keep D.J. Foster over Logan.
As for Vallejo’s release that wasn’t such a shock. We didn’t have him on our 53-man projection but as for Robertson, he made each of our preseason projections.
Robertson had a very good preseason and made an impression on a number of Cardinals fans. I think it was safe to say Cardinals fans were happy for the most part he made the initial 53-man roster. Now, he’s gone, for now.
Hopefully Robertson can make his way to the practice squad but don’t count on it. If any other team saw his preseason performance, do not be surprised to see him end up on another team’s roster.
There is still a lot to be resolved before the day is out, including the makeup of the initial 10-man practice squad. What is fact now may be history in several hours, we don’t know, so please stay tuned!
