Arizona Cardinals release guard Adam Snyder
Though he signed a five-year, $17.5 million contract with the team, his tenure in the Valley did not last long.
The Cardinals, who drafted North Carolina guard Jonathan Cooper in the first round last Thursday, announced Monday they have released the veteran, likely clearing room for the rookie.

The Cardinals are also going to save a little bit of money.

Snyder, who started 14 games for the team, struggled with injuries and was not all that effective when on the field. He spent time at both right guard and center.
