Be careful not to blink an eye because the Arizona Cardinals are continuously making practice squad changes
As stated yesterday, what may be the case one hour may not be the case the next for the Arizona Cardinals. They’ve already made that a true statement on Monday.
On Sunday, the team announced seven practice squad players. On Monday, they have already cut two of them. The waived quarterback Drew Anderson and receiver A.J. Richardson. They added offensive lineman Sam Jones.
They must have more moves coming up their sleeve because there was plenty of room to add Jones without cutting Anderson and Richardson.
The Anderson release would make sense if they are truly adding Kyle Sloter, a move first announced on Sunday by Sloter himself. However the Cardinals have not made the move yet as he is still not officially on the roster or practice squad.
Having two quarterbacks on the practice squad would not make sense. Dumping Richardson so fast also does not make sense unless the Cardinals already have a plan to replace him with someone else fairly quickly. So far, nothing.
The Cardinals kept seven receivers on the active roster, so having one on the practice squad doesn’t seem like a necessity at the moment. It seems to be a fluid situation though.
With the two cuts and the one addition, it officially leaves the Cardinals practice squad at six players for the moment. If Sloter is added sometime on Monday or Tuesday, that would make seven. That would leave the Cardinals with three open spots on the squad.
As for Jones, he is someone fans locally should know. He played at Arizona State. At this point are the Cardinals trying to add as many ASU players to their roster as they can?
But all jokes aside, Jones adds another offensive lineman in the fold. It is only prudent to have some guys on the squad ready to go with the injury history of the line recently. Jones played five games for the Denver Broncos in 2018.
