It’s been a long 48 hours for the Arizona Cardinals brass. Picking, cutting and fine tuning this 2017 Arizona Cardinals roster in order to make the 4:00 pm EST deadline had to have been a tough task.

The Cardinals had a plethora of decisions to make these past two days and here’s what the Cardinals will look like, at least for today. Tomorrow marks the point in the NFL season where the players whom have been released, can get signed by other NFL squads. That means if you made today’s cut, tomorrow might be different. Let’s look at what the 53 man roster looks like right now at each position.

Today’s Final Thoughts

Like I said above, the Cardinals organization had a lot of players to choose from in order to fill this roster. The good thing is, they still have options and decisions they have to make tomorrow that could change what this roster finally looks like.

Players like Scooby Wright III and Cap Capi could be back in an Arizona Cardinals uniform and placed on the practice squad. Or, we could see them getting picked up by another NFL organization. Running Back TJ Logan will be placed on the IR which will open up another spot which by the look of things, could open the door for that rumored punter signing of Andy Lee.

With a week until left until the regular season kickoff between the Cardinals and Lions, a lot can still happen. Check back here tomorrow for all the latest Arizona Cardinals news.
