The Arizona Cardinals announced Tuesday four roster moves that shrink the roster down to 80 men before the final preseason game against the New Orleans Saints on Saturday.

The Cardinals have released offensive lineman Branden Bowen and defensive lineman David Parry, waived injured linebacker Jamell Garcia-Williams while placing defensive lineman Jack Crawford on injured reserve.

Bowen was signed by the Carolina Panthers as an undrafted free agent last season before getting released prior to the start of the season and signing with the Cardinals in February.

Bowen played his collegiate football at Ohio State where he was named Second-Team All-Big Ten in 2019.

Parry was drafted by the Indianapolis Colts in 2015 before starting all 32 games in his first two seasons.

He totaled 78 total tackles and 4.0 sacks with the Colts before time with the New Orleans Saints, Minnesota Vikings and New England Patriots in the past three years.

Garcia-Williams was an undrafted rookie free agent with the San Francisco 49ers in 2019, before signing with the Cardinals in April.

Crawford has been in the league since 2012 when he was selected in the fifth round by the Oakland Raiders.

Last season Crawford appeared for the Tennessee Titans, starting nine games at defensive end and recording two sacks and a forced fumble.

The Cardinals have until 1 p.m. on Aug. 31 to cut their roster down from 80 players to 53.
