Arizona tight end Todd Heap, whose signing two years ago was seen as a homecoming for the Pro Bowl player, was cut by the Cardinals on Tuesday. In his place, the Cardinals signed free-agent tight end Kory Sperry, who was with the San Diego Chargers before he was cut in September. Heap, who went to Mesa (Ariz.) Mountain View High School and Arizona State University, played 10 seasons with the Baltimore Ravens before signing with the Cardinals in 2011. However, he has played 12 games with Arizona since then. He missed six games last season with a hamstring injury and 10 this year with a posterior cruciate ligament injury suffered during the Cardinals' win at New England. Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt said Heap was not able to practice at full speed after being inactivate for three weeks. Heap had 32 catches for 377 yards and one touchdown in Arizona. He had 499 career receptions for 5,869 yards and 42 touchdowns. He played in two Pro Bowls, his second and third seasons.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Arizona Cardinals have released TE Todd Heap.
Heap, 32, has been inactive for 10 straight games, despite the fact that he’s no longer dealing with issues related to a previous knee injury that he suffered. Heap apparently hasn’t been able to practice at full speed, which is why the team had held him out of game-action.
It’s hard to imagine...
TEMPE, Ariz. If timing is everything, then Ken Whisenhunts machinery could use some fine-tuning. When it comes to quarterbacks, the Cardinals coachs internal clock seems a bit off.
In the latest turn in the Cardinals 3-year-old quarterback saga, Whisenhunt announced Wednesday that John Skelton will resume his role as the clubs starting quarterback when the club faces Seattle on...
The Arizona Cardinals started out 4-0 and it looked as if the red birds had arrived. However, 8 straight losses has sent the feel good story to an almost tearjerker. “You gotta laugh to keep from crying,”
TEMPE, Ariz. At the risk of stating the obvious, the Cardinals need quarterback Kevin Kolb to play. Now. Not to save the season; thats already gone. To save morale. To save coach Ken Whisenhunts job. To keep alive whatever shred of hope remains for this franchise.
We have no idea how much pain Kolb is still experiencing. He just smiles and repeats the same vague answers when we...
Former Baltimore Ravens TE is now a former Arizona Cardinals TE as well. Reports are out today that the Cardinals are parting ways with the two-time Pro Bowler in the midst of the their downward spiral. Heap was selected in the 1st round of the 2001 NFL draft by the Baltimore Ravens, where he played until signing a two-year deal with the Cardinals just beofre the 2011 season.
The Arizona Cardinals offense has been bad this season, but never worse than it was on Sunday.
Its performance in the 7-6 loss to the New York Jets was among the worst in the team's history, and that's saying something for a franchise that's had a lot of bad Sundays.
The team had five first downs, tied for fewest in franchise history, was 0 for 15 on third-down conversions...
Arizona defensive tackle Darnell Dockett says he's apologized to teammate Kerry Rhodes for the pair's on-field run-in during the waning seconds of last Sunday's loss to the New York Jets.
Dockett says Rhodes has forgiven him and the pair is moving on.
What Dockett described as a ''very heated argument'' stemmed from Rhodes trying to persuade him to allow...
Arizona safety Kerry Rhodes has confirmed he had a run-in with teammate Darnell Dockett at the end of Sunday's game against the New York Jets.
Rhodes says in an email released by the Cardinals that there was an on-field ''disagreement'' but emphatically denies a report that Dockett spit in his face and says the two have agreed to move on.
The dispute reportedly...
TEMPE, Ariz. Maybe somebody should roll out Herman Edwards infamous postgame press conference for Cardinals defensive tackle Darnell Dockett.
You play to win the game! Hello?! You play to win the game!
Give Dockett credit for facing the media on Wednesday, as a team captain should do. Give Dockett credit for apologizing to teammate Kerry Rhodes for an altercation of which details...
Mike Jurecki reports that the Cardinals will start John Skelton at quarterback this weekend against the Seattle Seahawks.
#Cards starting QB John Skelton this week vs Seattle.
— Mike Jurecki (@mikejurecki) December 5, 2012
Given that Ryan Lindley appears to be one of the worst quarterbacks in NFL, this moves makes plenty of sense, even though you could argue that Skelton is also...
The Ryan Lindley experiment at quarterback is over. John Skelton will start for the Arizona Cardinals in Week 14 at Seattle.
Despite the struggles of Lindley, 10-of31 with a interception, the Cardinals never considered allowing Skelton to play in last weeks loss to the New York Jets. During that game the Jets replaced a struggling Mark Sanchez at quarterback and won with third string...
After being pulled late in week 13′s matchup against the capricious Arizona Cardinals after throwing his third INT and generally being ineffective, Sanchez will get yet another shot in the saddle. Rex Ryan has named Mark Sanchez the starting QB for Sunday’s game in Jacksonville, in what some would call an appalling display of “cement-headedness.” This decision [...]
