NFL roster cuts: Bradley Sowell is "an excellent young tackle prospect"

USA TODAY Sports

Bruce Arians gives his thoughts on new additions to the 53-man roster.

The Arizona Cardinals added two players off of waiver on Sunday -- offensive tackle Bradley Sowell and defensive tackle Alameda Ta'amu. On Monday, head coach Bruce Arians spoke about both of them.

"Bradley Sowell I'm very familiar with," said Arians to reporters. "We (the Colts) claimed him last year. He played a lot in a couple of big two-minute drives at the end of games. I think he's an excellent young tackle prospect."

He sounds like a guy that they will plan on developing, which should light a fire under Nate Potter. Sowell currently sits behind Potter at left tackle on the depth chart.

Ta'amu was exactly what the team was looking for to play behind starter Dan Williams.

"Alameda is a big, physical presence in the middle," explained Arians. "Talking to the people in Pittsburgh, they wanted to keep him, but their numbers -- Al Woods and a couple of other players came on string for them, so we're real happy that he became available."

Ta'amu is the number two nose tackle behind Williams.
