The team got down to 74 by cutting undrafted rookie safety Javon Harris and tight end Mickey Shuler, whom the team had claimed off waivers during training camp.
Then, to help with the team's situation at tight end, which is riddled by injuries and ineffectiveness, Arizona signed veteran tight end Richard Quinn.
Quinn (6-4, 264) comes to the Cardinals after he was released by the Cincinnati Bengals this past Sunday. In his fifth NFL season, Quinn has played in 30 career games with four starts and has one catch for nine yards. He entered the league as a second-round choice in the 2009 NFL Draft out North Carolina. He played in 29 games in two seasons with Denver before appearing in one contest with the Redskins in 2011. Quinn was inactive for 15 games last season while with the Bengals.
Obviously, Quinn is not going to be starting material, but with Rob Housler out with an ankle sprain, Jeff King still having issues with his knee, they need depth at least.
