Arizona Cardinals release OT Levi Brown
The Arizona Cardinals have parted ways with Levi Brown.
A left tackle, Brown played in all 16 games last season, and while he had his fare share of struggles with the team, he did play well over the second half of the season.
Brown's release does not mean his time with the Cardinals has officially come to an end, as the team has maintained interest in bringing their former first round pick back.
However, Brown's cap hit was sitting at a hefty $17 million going into this season, a salary the team could not justify paying the career underachiever.
Brown was taken number five overall in the 2007 draft over players like Minnesota Viking running back Adrian Peterson and San Francisco 49er linebacker Patrick Willis. He has started 75 out of a possible 80 games in his NFL career.
