The Cardinals, banged up at wide receiver and with three preseason games coming in an 11-day span, needed a wide receiver. And as unlucky as it is to get into a car accident that costs you practice time, there was always the chance safety Aaron Rouse would have been the odd man out anyway when a roster move was needed.
So it isn’t a shock that the Cardinals cut Rouse Wednesday to sign former Arizona State wide receiver Mike Jones. Rouse got hurt in the Monday accident coming back to training camp. Rouse was signed because of injuries at safety and now, the Cards are healthy at the position. Jones has spent time with the Texans and Seahawks since going undrafted in 2009. With Larry Fitzgerald (knee) and Early Doucet (abdomen) hurting, the Cards need someone who can take some reps. The team doesn’t want to overwork Steve Breaston either.
