Pro Football Focus suggests surprising cut for Arizona Cardinals this offseason

It’s always interesting to get other people’s take on what the Arizona Cardinals need to do this offseason.

When you look at sites like Pro Football Focus, they give you their idea of what the Cardinals should do this offseason with their cap space and what they should do to make more cap space.

The Cardinals have about $53.7 million in cap space and Pro Football Focus thinks they need to start by getting about $4 million more in cap space by cutting veteran offensive line leader J.R. Sweezy.

This seems counterintuitive with both D.J. Humphries and A.Q. Shipley as free agents. Getting nearly the entire offensive line reset seems less than optimal for a team looking to grow with Kyler Murray.

I get the idea that you can improve the Arizona Cardinals offensive line, but replacing Humphries and Shipley seems like a big ask, then to actually cut Sweezy and replace him just doesn’t seem like a smart move. Why create a hole that isn't there?

What do you think?
