It's Not Funny! Arizona Cardinals Expected To Release Derek Anderson, Joey Porter

As the days creep closer to the expiration of the NFL collective bargaining agreement, many teams have begun trimming salaries from their rosters. On Monday, the Chicago Bears, Washington Redskins and New York Jets made some notable moves, releasing Tommie Harris, Clinton Portis, Damien Woody and Vernon Gholston

It was announced on Tuesday that there are other teams are expected to make similar moves, including the Arizona Cardinals. In what is no surprise and has been expected since the end of the season, Arizona is expected to cut ties with quarterback Derek Anderson and linebacker Joey Porter.

Anderson did not play again after his postgame tirade after a loss on Monday Night Football to the San Francisco 49ers. Porter was due to earn $5.75 million in 2011.
