The five players included:
However, 85 is not the last deadline that NFL teams have to meet. On August 23rd the team will be required to only be holding 80 and by August 30th the final cut is due to have the team’s roster down to 53.

As of now, Arizona will still have to cut 33 players before August 30th.
