The Cardinals will cut receiver Early Doucet, The Arizona Republic reported on Saturday.
The move is expected to save the team about 1.7 million in cap space. Doucet has been in Arizona since the Cards drafted him in the third round in the 2008 draft, with his biggest season coming in 2011, when he caught 54 passes for 689 yards and five touchdowns.
The move is not surprising given that Doucet has been plagued by injuries and inconsistency for most of his career. The 2011 season was the only one in which he played more than 12 games, and he played 10 or fewer in each of his first three seasons.
With veterans Larry Fitzgerald and Andre Roberts in the fold as well as 2012 first-round pick Michael Floyd, the Cards appear set at the position, at least for the money Doucet would be making as a No. 4 receiver.
