For less than 24 hours, guys like Evan Boehm, Will Holden, A.J. Howard and Vontarrius Dora were released today in order to make a variety of signings.
Holden and Boehm were outright cuts, while Howard and Dora were waived/injured.
In corresponding moves the Cardinals claimed Blaine Clausell, Jeremy Vujnovich, Garrison Smith and in a free agent pickup, veteran defensive end Zach Moore, who was cut by the Carolina Panthers.
From the team:
Clausell (6-6, 330) originally entered the league with Baltimore as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2015 out of Mississippi State. He had practice squad stints with Baltimore, New England and Carolina in his first three NFL seasons and was inactive for three regular season games with Washington in 2016. Most recently, the 26-year-old Clausell spent the 2017 regular season on the Panthers practice squad and he was inactive for Carolina’s Wild Card playoff game last year.
Moore (6-6, 275) comes to the Cardinals from Carolina where he spent the first 11 weeks of last season on the Panthers practice squad before being elevated to the active roster where he was inactive for the final five regular season games. He has played in 10 career games (one start) and has three tackles, a half-sack, one fumble recovery and one forced fumble after entering the league with New England in the sixth-round (198th overall) in the 2014 NFL Draft out of Concordia-St. Paul. The 27-year old Moore played in eight games with the Patriots as a rookie in 2014 before playing one game with Minnesota in 2015 and splitting the 2016 season between Dallas and San Francisco.
Smith (6-1, 295) entered the league as an undrafted rookie free agent with the Dolphins in 2014 out of Georgia and has spent time on the practice squads of Miami (2014), New Orleans (2014) and San Francisco (2014-15). The 26-year-old Smith made his NFL debut with the Seahawks in 2016 and collected five tackles in three games. He played in eight games with Seattle last year and had nine tackles.
Vujnovich (6-5, 300) started all 16 games at left guard for Indianapolis last season after appearing in two games for the Colts in 2016. The 27-year-old Vujnovich entered the NFL as an undrafted rookie free agent with the Packers in 2014 out of Louisiana College and spent his first two seasons (2014-15) seasons on Green Bay’s practice squad.
