NFL Trade Rumors:
Adiki Kinkhabwala of the NFL Network reports that the Arizona Cardinals have parted ways with LB Stewart Bradley.
Bradley, 29, landed in Arizona back in 2011 when he agreed to a five-year deal worth $25 million. He had a base salary of $5 million coming his way this season. Releasing him will free up $3.5 million for the Cardinals to use this offseason.
Bradley dealt with concussion problems after joining the Cardinals and wound up playing only 40 snaps for them in 2012. He’s still young enough to get another shot, but he figures to command a very minimal salary on the open market.
The Cardinals also announced that they’ve released CB William Gay on Friday.
Gay, 28, signed a two-year deal worth $3.2 million contract with the Cardinals last year. He triggered an escalator that raised his base salary to a $1.75 million for 2013 season.
Gay was rated as one of the one of the worst cornerbacks in the league by Pro Football Focus, so it will be interesting to see what kind of interest t...

According to Chris Wesseling of NFL.com, the Arizona Cardinals did some house cleaning releasing linebacker Stewart Bradley and cornerback William Gay.
Stewart was scheduled to make $5 million in 2013, but he never lived up to expectations after coming over from Philadelphia. Bradley struggled in the 3-4 defense and the Cardinals want to move in another direction.

Former Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback William Gay signed a two-year contract last offseason with the Arizona Cardinals during the free agency signing period. He won't, however, see the second year of that deal as he was released on Friday as the Cardinals attempt to get under the salary cap.

The Arizona Cardinals were one of the teams that expressed
interest in San Francisco 49ers quarterback Alex Smith before a trade agreement
was reached with the Kansas City Chiefs. As a result of this deal, the
Cardinals could still end up with a quarterback, but instead of Smith it could
be Chiefs’ incumbent Matt Cassel.
Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that the Cardinals...
Four games into the 2012 season, Arizona was undefeated and Kevin Kolb looked like he might be turning into the quarterback the Cardinals hoped he would be when acquiring him from Philadelphia.
But a loss to St. Louis in week five and an injury to Kolb during a defeat against Buffalo turned the tide on the season and the Cardinals never recovered, losing 11 of 12 and finishing in...
