Cardinals vs. Chargers: Arizona Cardinals release Week 1 depth chart with a few changes

Take a look where the players are at now.

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona Cardinals released their first depth chart of the season over the weekend when final cuts were made. There were some strange things about it, like Glenn Carson at outside linebacker and Stepfan Taylor as the number two RB when he was the third team guy for almost all of camp.

On Tuesday, the depth chart was updated. Here is how it looks now:


QB: Carson Palmer, Drew Stanton, Logan Thomas

RB: Andre Ellington, Jonathan Dwyer, Stepfan Taylor, Robert Hughes

WR: Larry Fitzgerald, John Brown

TE: Rob Housler, Troy Niklas

TE: John Carlson, Darren Fells

WR: Michael Floyd, Ted Ginn, Jaron Brown

LT: Jared Veldheer, Bradley Sowell

LG: Ted Larsen, Jonathan Cooper

C: Lyle Sendlein, Ted Lersen

RG: Paul Fanaika, Earl Watford

RT: Bobby Massie, Bradley Sowell


DE: Calais Campbell, Kareem Martin

NT: Dan Williams, Alameda Ta'amu

DT: Frostee Rucker, Ed Stinson, Tommy Kelly

SOLB: Matt Shaughnessy, Sam Acho, Thomas Keiser

ILB: Larry Foote, Kenny Demens, Desmond Bishop

ILB: Kevin Minter, Lorenzo Alexander, Glenn Carson

WOLB: John Abraham, Alex Okafor

LCB: Patrick Peterson, Justin Bethel

RCB: Antonio Cromartie, Jerraud Powers

FS: Tyrann Mathieu, Rashad Johnson

SS: Tony Jefferson, Deone Bucannon


P: Dave Zastudil

K: Chandler Catanzaro

H: Dave Zastudil

LS: Mike Leach

KR: Ted Ginn, John Brown

PR: Ted Ginn, Patrick Peterson

The return jobs have been consolidated into two each. Jonathan Dwyer now sits as the number two running back. Rob Housler, previously listed behind John Carlson, now is listed as a starter.

Ted Larsen is the starting left guard. You see that Ted Ginn is ahead of Jaron Brown and John Brown seems to have become the number three receiver.

The biggest noise from this will probably be the fact that Tyrann Mathieu is listed as the starter. Does that mean he will play? Perhaps, but not because of what is listed. He has been the starter all offseason.
