Arizona Cardinals release LaRon Byrd, Dan Giordano

The pair of young players didn't see playing time in 2013.

The Arizona Cardinals announced that they made a pair of roster moves on Friday, releasing receiver LaRon Byrd and linebacker Dan Giordano.

Byrd (6-4, 220) spent the 2013 season on injured reserve after playing in three games as a rookie in 2012. Giordano (6-4, 260) spent his entire rookie season on the Physically Unable to Perform list after he signed as a rookie free agent out of Cincinnati.

While it was not noted, it would not be surprising if the two still were having health issues. It is commonplace to waive players who aren't healthy during the offseason -- as it cannot be done during the season without an injury settlement.

The moves do not necessarily mean more transactions are coming in the near future. The team still needs to fills its 90-man offseason roster, but that will happen more after the draft, when the team can add rookie free agents.
