Highsmith cut, Abdullah signed

Posted by Darren Urban on December 22, 2009 – 4:13 pm

The Cardinals made couple of roster moves Tuesday, the most noteworthy being the cutting linebacker Ali Highsmith (pictured below in happier times). I’m not sure of what the reasoning will be for the Highsmith move. We will have to see what coach Ken Whisenhunt says tomorrow.

The Cards used that spot to sign safety Hamza Abdullah, a 6-foot-2, 216-pounder who has spent time with Denver and Cleveland since coming into the NFL in 2005. Abdullah gives the Cards a veteran presence at backup safety lost when Matt Ware went on IR. He was cut by the Browns in preseason this year. The Cards also added a body on the offensive line by bringing in tackle Cliff Louis to the practice squad, releasing fullback Brandon Renkart.

LB change on practice squad

Posted by Darren Urban on October 21, 2009 – 9:09 am

The Cardinals have made a change on their practice squad, dropping linebacker Lee Robinson for linebacker Brandon Renkart. Renkart is a 6-foot-2, 245-pounder who was cut by the Jets at the end of the preseason after going undrafted out of Rutgers in 2008 and spending last season on New York’s practice squad.
