The Arizona Cardinals have their roster down to 53 players. The released 20 players outright, released one with an injury settlement and placed one on injured reserve.
Here is how the team looks now by position:
QB (3): Carson Palmer, Drew Stanton, Logan Thomas
RB (4): Andre Ellington, Jonathan Dwyer, Stepfan Taylor, Robert Hughes
WR (6): Larry Fitzgerald, Michael Floyd, John Brown, Jaron Brown, Ted Ginn, Walt Powell
TE (4): John Carlson, Rob Housler, Troy Niklas, Darren Fells
OL (8): Jared Veldheer, Ted Larsen, Lyle Sendlein, Paul Fanaika, Bobby Massie, Jonathan Cooper, Earl Watford, Bradley Sowell
DL (7): Frostee Rucker, Dan Williams, Calais Campbell, Tommy Kelly, Alameda Ta'amu, Kareem Martin, Ed Stinson
OLB (5): John Abraham, Matt Shaughnessy, Sam Acho, Alex Okafor and Lorenzo Alexander
ILB (5): Larry Foote, Kevin Minter, Kenny Demens, Desmond Bishop and Glenn Carson
CB (4): Patrick Peterson, Antonio Cromartie, Jerraud Powers, Justin Bethel
S (4): Tyrann Mathieu, Tony Jefferson, Rashad Johnson, Deone Bucannon
K (1): Chandler Catanzaro
P (1): Dave Zastudil
LS (1): Mike Leach
When you look at the numbers, you see that it is a little unbalanced. They have six receivers but only eight defensive backs. They have six outside linebackers. Glenn Carson and Lorenzo Alexander are now listed at outside linebacker, not inside.
They have seven defensive linemen.
The unbalanced look would suggest they could have other moves in the mix. We will see over the next couple of days.
