What are your thoughts about the inactive and recent moves the Cardinals have made?

Kliff Notes:

  • WR Greg Dortch takes over the slot WR role.
  • Starters at CB: Byron Murphy Jr. and Marco Wilson with Jace Whittaker in the slot (very surprised to see the Cardinals release CB Javelin Guidry).
  • Hard to believe that Myjai Sanders couldn’t be a factor pressure Mahomes.
  • With Justin Pugh out and Rodney Hudson active, starting OL looks like: LT-D.J. Humphries, LG-Sean Harlow; C-Rodney Hudson; RG-Will Hernandez; RT-Kelvin Beachum
  • With JJ Watt out, the 34 interior looks like LDE Zach Allen; NT Rashard Lawrence, RDE; Michael Dogbe
  • TE Stephen Anderson’s utility and special teams’ roles gave him the nod over rookie Trey McBride who missed a 10-12 day stretch of practice time during the middle of training camp. Cardinals waived Anderson with the understanding they would re-sign him after making the IR designations.
