An hour before the deadline, the Arizona Cardinals announced their final cuts in order to get the roster down to just 53 players.

While there are certainly plenty more moves to come, with waiver claims approaching on Wednesday, the Cardinals are nearing their final roster with a total of 31 cuts made today.

Players who are no longer with the Cardinals include:

  • LB David Anenih
  • WR Andre Baccellia
  • DL Eric Banks
  • OL Jackson Barton
  • QB David Blough
  • LS Aaron Brewer
  • S Kendell Brooks
  • OL Cole Cabral
  • S Andre Chachere
  • RB Corey Clement
  • WR Brian Cobbs
  • WR Davion Davis
  • WR Kaden Davis
  • QB Jeff Driskel
  • TE Joel Honingford
  • OL Hayden Howerton
  • S JuJu Hughes
  • OL Braylon Jones
  • DL Rashad Lawrence
  • LB Zach McCloud
  • CB Bobby Price
  • RB Stevie Scott
  • TE Bernhard Seikovits
  • DL Jacob Slade
  • WR Brandon Smith
  • OL Lecitus Smith
  • LB Kyle Soelle
  • TE Noah Togiai
  • OL Badara Traore
  • CB Quavian White
  • RB Ty’Son Williams

Notably, on the offensive side of things, the Cardinals cut a total of five wide receivers. Additionally, three running backs were let go, including Corey Clement, who began seeing reps with Arizona towards the end of last season.

Now, it is looking like the Cardinals will rely on a combination of Keaontay Ingram and Emari Demercado to backup James Conner at the running back position.

Another noteworthy development is the decision not to retain QB David Blough. Blough, who started in two games for the Cardinals during the past season when both Colt McCoy and Kyler Murray were sidelined due to injuries, failed to survive the final cuts.

Lastly, Rashad Lawrence, the Cardinals former 4th round pick back in 2020, did not make the final roster after spending the past three seasons in Arizona. Lawrence has played in 25 games for the Cardinals since he was drafted.

Stay tuned for further updates.
