Report: Arizona Cardinals to release wide receiver Early Doucet
With the Arizona Cardinals’ wide receiving corps seemingly solidified heading into the 2013 season with Larry Fitzgerald, Andre Roberts and Michael Floyd, the organization reportedly intends to release veteran wide receiver Early Doucet Saturday.
According to Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic, releasing Doucet, 27, will help the team save $1.7 million as it heads into free agency.
In five years with the Cardinals, the former LSU standout had 139 catches for 1,491 yards and seven touchdowns.
While Doucet had a breakout year in 2011 (54 catches and five touchdowns), his production level dropped this past season due to the emergence of Floyd and Roberts.
Doucet was selected by the Cardinals in the third round of the 2008 NFL Draft.
