Arizona Cardinals have a shot to address their offensive line with Browns sudden release of Desmond Harrison

NFL: Cleveland Browns at Detroit Lions Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports

For the Arizona Cardinals, their offseason has been about change.

They turned over their coaching staff, their roster and now are preparing for the 2019 season.

Yet, one position group has continually been questioned... The offensive line.

Despite making moves for Marcus Gilbert and J.R. Sweezy as starters and taking Lamont Gaillard and Joshua Miles in the draft, many feel enough was not done.

Well, according to John Gambadoro of Arizona Sports they could make one more move.

The Cleveland Browns made the surprising announcement today that they have released left tackle Desmond Harrison. That release means Harrison will go through the waiver process and Gambo thinks the Arizona Cardinals could reap the benefit:

The Cardinals have first priority on any and every player as they hit the waiver wire until week three of the 2019 NFL season.

That means, when teams release players with less than four years of accrued service, they pass through the waivers system.

This benefits a team like the Cardinals who have a dearth of talent.

A player like Harrison would be an interesting option for the Cardinals. He would not be viewed as an immediate starter, although he did start eight games for the Browns, and has been someone that intrigues pundits and analyst with his upside potential.

Would you be in favor of the Arizona Cardinals claiming Desmond Harrison?
