The Arizona Cardinals needed help at starting as well as depth along the offensive line when the offseason started.

While the starters are roughly in place, depth is a necessity with the injury history of four of the five starters.

They had some intriguing names on the interior with Evan Boehm, A.Q. Shipley and Max Tuerk.

That has changed, as the team announced that they have released Tuerk from his contract.

Tuerk only appeared in a single game with the Arizona Cardinals, in fact, Tuerk played a single NFL snap with the Arizona Cardinals and so far, in his NFL career.

Tuerk was a third round pick of the Los Angeles Chargers in 2016 after losing most of his senior season. He did not play in the NFL in 2016 while trying to recover from that injury.

His 2017 season started off even worse, being suspended four games for performance enhancing drugs.

The Cardinals picked him up in November after losing Daniel Munyer was placed on injured reserve.

Tuerk was a highly regarded prospect coming out of USC and just never seem to recover from his injury his senior season.

Good luck to wherever your career takes you next, Max.
