Hold On! Cardinals Now Not Expected To Make Cuts This Week

In what could be considered a cruel joke to Arizona Cardinals fans, who have mostly been ruing the day of Derek Anderson's departure from the team. Despite an earlier report that the Cardinals were set to release both Anderson and linebacker Joey Porter this week, it is now being said that, at least for now, the Cardinals will not be making any cuts from their roster.

According to Kent Somers, there is no reason to make the cuts now as opposed to later. The Cardinals have plenty of space with the salary cap, should they decide to pursue another player that was cut by other teams or renegotiate a contract of one of their own players. Also, while Anderson is set to make $4.25 million and Porter $5.75 million in 2011, their salaries do not begin until the 2011 season begins and they had no roster bonus due.
