2014 NFL roster cuts: Jay Feely among first 12 Arizona Cardinals cuts

The deed is done.

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona Cardinals had until Tuesday afternoon to make their first cuts, paring their roster down to 75 players from 87. They have announced the release of 13 players.

They are:

  • LB Keenan Clayton
  • LB JoJo Dickson
  • C Tom Draheim
  • WR Reggie Dunn
  • K Jay Feely
  • LB Derrell Johnson
  • S Orhian Johnson
  • QB Ryan Lindley
  • WR Kevin Ozier
  • DT Justin Renfrow
  • CB Brandon Sermons
  • T Max Starks
  • RB Damien Thigpen

None of these cuts are big surprises, except for maybe Max Starks, who looked very good in his first game in the preseason, but was bothered by a sore ankle thereafter. He entered the game and later came out. It appears this was done so that he did not get hurt again.

The rest of the guys matchup more or less with the players I projected would be among first cuts.

Will there be more moves? Perhaps. If there are, they will have to make corresponding moves on the roster. However, this usually isn't the time when teams are scouring the waiver wire. That usually comes with final cuts.
