Arizona Cardinals make roster moves with pair of undrafted rookies

One player is let go with an injury, one is added.

USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona Cardinals made a couple of roster moves with players that likely no one has heard of. Likely, you won't remember who these players are after the preseason, either. But they are/were Cardinals and they are hoping to make a splash for someone.

The team announced that they waived-injured receiver Javone Lawson, who has an injury to his Achilles tendon.

To replace him, they signed undrafted rookie receiver Charles Hawkins, who has a connection to the coaching staff.

Hawkins (5-8, 180) is a rookie free agent who played collegiately at Southern and had 31 catches for 467 yards (15.1 yard avg.) and seven touchdowns as a senior in 2012. He played at Southern under current Cardinals running backs coach Stump Mitchell, who was the Jaguars head coach from 2010-12. For his career, Hawkins played in 34 games and had 71 receptions for 1,091 yards (15.4 yard avg.) and 10 touchdowns.
