After four preseason games, it has become quite apparent that the Arizona Cardinals are in need of some more depth at other positions. Most specifically, their offensive line could use some help, as well as a possible veteran quarterback even.

Teams are now making their initial cuts, trimming their rosters to 75 players each. The Cardinals have already truncated their roster, but other teams are still working on doing the same. Here are the teams that have made moves thus far, according to Pro Football Talk.

With these cuts, three offensive tackles are now available for pickup, as well as a couple of other interesting players that the Cards could take a look at.

The tackles that are now ready to be picked up on waivers are Dan Hoch, Levi Horn, Herb Taylor and Thomas Welch, who most recently played for the Eagles. None of these guys are really household names, but if any of them can come in and push the players the Cardinals already have on the roster, they will have done their jobs. And by the way, D'Anthony Batiste isn't really a household name either, yet he is slated to start at one of the tackle positions for the Cards this season.

Also able to be claimed now is wide receiver Kerry Taylor who came out of Arizona State University. The Cardinals already have a plethora of receivers on the roster, but Taylor is a nice option that could be used in the slot and has good speed. He reminds me a bit of Andre Roberts in that respect.

Other than that, we are still waiting for the other teams to make their cuts. Only nine (including the Cardinals) have done so. Things will get really interesting once teams are forced to trim their rosters to 53. That is when the Cardinals will need to make some moves.
