Here is the Arizona Cardinals’ 53-man roster after the cut deadline

Aug 31, 2021, 3:38 PM

The Arizona Cardinals announced 15 cuts following Tuesday’s deadline for NFL teams to reach 53-man rosters.

Halfback and former ASU standout Eno Benjamin made the team, as the Cardinals kept four in the position group.

For the second straight year, the Cardinals elected to keep three quarterbacks on the 53-man roster as Chris Streveler made the cut behind Kyler Murray and Colt McCoy.

Arizona also held onto both rookie cornerbacks Marco Wilson and Tay Gowan as well as recent addition, 23-year-old Luq Barcoo.

Additionally, the Cardinals placed veteran cornerback Malcolm Butler on the reserve/retired list and waived injured offensive lineman Marcus Henry Tuesday afternoon.

Here is the Cardinals active roster following cuts:

QB: Kyler Murray, Colt McCoy, Chris Streveler

RB: Chase Edmonds, James Conner, Eno Benjamin, Jonathan Ward

WR: DeAndre Hopkins, Christian Kirk, A.J. Green, Rondale Moore, Andy Isabella, Antoine Wesley

TE: Maxx Williams, Demetrius Harris, Darrell Daniels

OL: D.J. Humphries, Kelvin Beachum, Josh Jones, Rodney Hudson, Brian Winters, Justin Murray, Joshua Miles, Max Garcia

DL: J.J. Watt, Jordan Phillips, Corey Peters, Zach Allen, Leki Fotu, Rashard Lawrence, Michael Dogbe

OLB: Chandler Jones, Markus Golden, Devon Kennard, Victor Dimukeje, Dennis Gardeck

ILB: Zaven Collins, Isaiah Simmons, Jordan Hicks, Tanner Vallejo, Zeke Turner

CB: Byron Murphy Jr., Marco Wilson, Tay Gowan, Luq Barcoo

S: Budda Baker, Jalen Thompson, Deionte Thompson, Charles Washington

ST: Aaron Brewer, Andy Lee, Matt Prater

The Cardinals still have left guard Justin Pugh and cornerback Robert Alford on the COVID-19 list, so more moves will be coming to create space for the two veterans.

NFL teams can start to fill out practice squads starting Wednesday morning at 9 a.m. MST.
