The Cardinals, again, adjusting for the start of camp, made two more roster moves Wednesday. Linebacker Tim Fugger was waived after he failed his physical. Undrafted rookie linebacker Dan Giordano will start camp on the active physically-unable-to-perform list with a toe injury. That means Giordano remains on the roster for now (if he is still on PUP when the regular season starts, he would not take a roster spot), but Fugger’s release means the Cards now have three empty roster spots. There were a couple of guys in for tryouts Wednesday — I do not know who — and, as we explored earlier today, there is the possibility of adding John Abraham.
Yes, it feels like this roster could churn a bit as we maneuver through camp and Bruce Arians and Steve Keim assess what they have.

Some quick tidbits on a quiet Friday …
— Linebacker Daryl Washington gets named to yet another all-NFL team (although Bucky Brooks picks three inside linebackers and two outside linebackers for his new 12-man defense, apparently.) UPDATE: Washington was named second-team all-pro on Saturday as well.
— Assistant defensive backs coach Deshea Townsend is leaving, heading to the college game. He will be the new defensive backs coach at Mississippi State.
— The Cardinals signed seven players to “futures” contracts: LB Tim Fugger, DT Ricky Lumpkin, LB Colin Parker, DE Everrette Thompson, RB Fozzy Whittaker — all of whom ended the year on the practice squad — and G Jeremiah Warren, who was on the Patriots’ practice squad. (WR Gerell Robinson signed a futures deal with Denver.) A “futures” contract just means it doesn’t officially kick in until the new league year in March.
