Arizona Cardinals Make Minor Roster Moves

New, comments

The Cardinals made a couple of minor roster moves yesterday by released/cut Ahmad Merritt (WR) and Dionte Johnson (FB). Merritt has struggled in trying to recover from a severe ankleDionte_johnson_medium injury that he suffered during the preseason last year. Johnson, an undrafted free agent, has  been limited nearly the entire camp by a high ankle sprain. He did spend a while talking with Coach Whisenhunt after practice and there is some thought that he's still a candidate for the practice squad.

One of the open roster spots was filled by running back, Chris Vincent. Vincent was cut earlier in camp and he's an interesting signing because the running back stable seems to be full and he doesn't exactly have defined position. Vincent was a part time running back and part time linebacker at Oregon, but his the only area that he really excelled at was on special teams. I don't know what they see in him but it's the second time that they've singed him this year. They still have an open roster spot so there could be another signing coming or they could just leave the roster at 79 and since they have to cut it down to 75 by next Tuesday.
