The Arizona Cardinals have released 2009 first-round pick Andre Smith, 98.7 FM Arizona Sports Station’s John Gambadoro reported.

The 10-year veteran offensive lineman signed a two-year, $8 million deal and $3 million guaranteed with Arizona in March as an unrestricted free agent.

Smith played in only eight games with the Cardinals and missed three due to injury.

The 31-year-old Smith was drafted No. 6 overall by the Cincinnati Bengals out of Alabama. He spent eight seasons with the Bengals and one with the Minnesota Vikings in 2016.

Arizona is ranked last in the NFL this season in net yards per game on offense. Rookie quarterback Josh Rosen has been sacked 24 times in his first eight starts.

The Cardinals release follows a 45-10 loss to the San Diego Chargers on Sunday. Arizona led Los Angeles 10-0  after the first quarter and did not score the rest of the game.
