The Cardinals made a couple of roster moves Tuesday, adjusting the lineup for injury and other reasons. The Cardinals released linebacker Marcus Benard and also cut punter Drew Butler. Butler’s release means Dave Zastudil should be healthy enough to punt this week against the 49ers. The Cardinals also signed outside linebacker Victor Butler, a 2009 fourth-round pick of the Dallas Cowboys.
Victor Butler has 11 sacks in his career. He was with the Saints in 2013 but tore his ACL in a training camp practice. His addition could aid the pass rush — the Cardinals are going to continue to throw possibilities at the pass rush to see if something clicks — and of course, makes sure the Cardinals still have a Butler on the roster.
Another thing that can help the pass rush is the return of John Abraham, and with Tuesday’s 2-for-1 swap, the Cardinals still have an open roster spot for when Abraham is officially reinstated to the team.
