The Arizona Cardinals cut four different players Friday, including QB Phillip Sims according to reports.

Sims thanked the Cardinals organization on social media Friday.

I want to thank the Arizona Cardinals organization for giving me this great opportunity to pursue my dream of playing on the ultimate stage. Very blessed to say that I was able to accomplish something that a lot of people told me I couldn't do. Only the lord knows what's next but I guarantee I won't give up now. #ThankYouBirdGang #PSUnO #Blessed
