A small contingent of free agents who once enjoyed superstar status with the Arizona Cardinals are still searching for work.

Throughout its existence as a franchise, the Arizona Cardinals have drafted more than their fair share of magnificent performers. Hanging on to all of those superb players has been difficult, however, due to the limits that the NFL salary cap puts on each and every team.

Time has passed, however, and the organization’s one-time standouts are not as productive as they used to be. The following are four former Cardinals stars who, at the time of this writing, remain unemployed.
