The turnover along the practice squad for the Arizona Cardinals has already started.

The team announced today that they have released quarterback Drew Anderson and wide receiver A.J. Richardson from the practice squad. Anderson and Richardson really played well in their final preseason game against the Denver Broncos, and it felt natural that the two would make it to the Arizona Cardinals practice squad.

Then, the weird announcement of Kyle Sloter joining the Arizona Cardinals practice squad made everyone raise an eyebrow.

So, now Anderson and Richardson are on their way out.

The team announced the signing of Arizona State offensive tackle Sam Jones to the practice squad, which means they now have four spots left, until they officially announce Kyle Sloter, which gives them three spots left.

From the team:

Jones (6-5, 290) played collegiately at Arizona State and spent the preseason with the Denver after playing in four games with the Broncos last season. He entered the league with Denver as a sixth-round selection (183rd overall) in the 2018 NFL Draft. The 23-year old Jones played in 32 games (25 starts) at Arizona State. He was released by the Broncos on August 31.

Welcome aboard Sam Jones, and good luck to Drew and A.J.
