Arizona Cardinals Trim Roster to 75: Keith Lewis, Michael Ray Garvin and Pago Togafau Gone

The Arizona Cardinals made the necessary moves to reduce their roster to 75 players today by shuffling players all over the place. The only players given their outright release were safety Keith Lewis and offensive tackle Brandon Pearce. Lewis, a former 49er under Bill Davis, was competing at strong safety and figured to be a strong special teams contributor if he made cut. Pearce, an undrafted rookie out of Memphis, was an undersized tackle who specialized in pass blocking.

The other moves involved two injured players as both Michael Ray Garvin and Pago Togafau were waived/injured which basically means that they are being released because they're injured. The team can still resign them once they are healthy, assuming that someone else doesn't sign them first. Togafau was having a decent preseason until he broke his foot against the Packers and Garvin is still recovering from knee surgery. The Cardinals also placed Cody Brown on IR.
