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.
