GLENDALE, Ariz. — While several storylines will emerge from Arizona Cardinals training camp, the one everyone will be watching is the battle for spots on the 53-man roster.

Key dates to watch are Sept. 2, when clubs must reduce rosters to a maximum of 53 players on the active/inactive list prior to 1 p.m. There’s also the day after on Sept. 3, when the claiming period for players placed on waivers at the final roster reduction expires at 9 a.m. and one hour later, teams may form their practice squad of ten players.

Here’s the second version of my 53-man roster projection. I’ll update the roster as moves are made throughout camp, including after every preseason game.


QUARTERBACKS (3): Carson Palmer, Drew Stanton, Blaine Gabbert

RUNNING BACKS (4): David Johnson, Chris Johnson, Kerwynn Williams, T.J. Logan

RECEIVERS (6): Larry Fitzgerald, John Brown, Jaron Brown, J.J. Nelson, Chad Williams, Brittan Golden

TIGHT ENDS (2): Jermaine Gresham, Troy Niklas

OFFENSIVE LINEMEN (9): D.J. Humphries, Mike Iupati, A.Q. Shipley, Evan Boehm, Jared Veldheer, Cole Toner, Dorian Johnson, Will Holden, John Wetzel
