NFL Cuts: Arizona Cardinals Say Goodbye To Clark Haggans, Trim Roster To 53

The Arizona Cardinals severed ties with more than a dozen players, some which were a surprise, as they made moves to set their roster at 53 players as required by the NFL. It does not mean that this is the team that will take the field next Sunday, but they released 18 players, placed two on injured reserve and waived/injured a pair of players.

The following players were the ones released from the team:

  • CB Crezdon Butler
  • LB Antonio Coleman
  • S Blake Gideon
  • LB Clark Haggans
  • G Russ Hochstein
  • DT Ricky Lumpkin
  • LB Colin Parker
  • CB Larry Parker
  • WR DeMarco Sampson
  • TE Steve Skelton
  • RB Alfonso Smith
  • LB Quan Sturdivant
  • DE Ronald Talley
  • DE Everrette Thompson
  • TE Martell Webb
  • C Scott Wedige
  • WR Isaiah Williams
  • OT D.J. Young

They placed Richard Bartel on injured reserve for his shoulder he hurt on Thursday, running back Javarris James with a knee injury and waived/injured LB Brandon Williams and WR Stephen Williams.
