Arizona Cardinals roster cuts following 2021 training camp

NFL teams are cutting down to the 53-player maximum. We’ll break down the moves as the Arizona Cardinals sort out their roster decisions.

The Arizona Cardinals head into a pivotal season for head coach Kliff Kingsbury and QB Kyler Murray. This is Year 3 of the Kingsbury era, meaning the Cardinals have to at least make the playoffs for him to show improvement. Murray also needs to show his production from last season can translate into a contending franchise.

The backfield workload between Chase Edmonds and James Conner will be a story all season. Rookie Rondale Moore has been involved in various packages during the preseason, creating intrigue for his role even with three wide receivers ahead of him on the depth chart.
