NFL roster moves: Arizona Cardinals waive pair of players

The roster shortens by two bodies.

The Arizona Cardinals announced a pair of roster moves on Thursday, the team's day off, waiving a pair of players to cut the roster down to 88 players.

They waived tight end Ted Bolser, whom they signed as a free agent in the offseason after spending time last season on the practice squad for a few days.

They also waived/injured guard John Fullington. Fullington suffered a knee injury in practice on Wednesday and had to be carted off the field. He joined the Cardinals last season as a member of the practice squad after Andre Ellington was placed on injured reserve. Then he was signed to a future contract after the season was over.

Either can be claimed off waivers, but there is a difference between the two. Bolser would become a free agent if he goes unclaimed. Fullington would end up on injured reserve if not claimed, at least until the team reach an injury settlement that removes him completely from the roster.

Even still, they have two open roster spots. Maybe it is a precursor to a signing, or perhaps they will just let the roster sit at 88. Bruce Arians has said that 90 is too many during camp. Then again, with the number of injuries the team has, perhaps they will go get someone.

If there is a signing, I'll be sure to keep you posted!
