Levi to IR and moves to get to 75 on roster

Posted by Darren Urban on August 24, 2012 – 3:56 pm

The Cardinals have trimmed their roster to the requisite 75 by cutting 12 players today, in addition to waiving injured fullback Jared Crank (neck) and running back Thomas Clayton (knee) and putting on injured reserve tackle Levi Brown, which officially ends Brown’s season. The Cards had until Monday to make the moves. The cut to 53 players must come a week from today, the day after the Cards close out the preseason with a game against Denver.

The 12 released were:

— DE Landon Cohen

— WR Gino Crump

— S Eddie Elder

— WR Tre Gray

— CB Marshay Green

— WR Jaymar Johnson

— FB Reagan Maui’a

— LB Marcus McGraw

— LB Zack Nash

— CB James Nixon

— K/P Ricky Schmitt

— LB Paul Vassallo

On a side note, defensive tackle Ricky Lumpkin was fined by the NFL $21,000 for hitting a defenseless player in the head/neck area, in this case, Raiders quarterback Matt Leinart. It’s a hefty sum for a guy who has yet to collect anything more than a practice squad paycheck in the league. (Kicker and NFLPA player rep Jay Feely informs us the fine is not collected unless Lumpkin makes a roster.)

Cards sign receiver, cut Lindsey

Posted by Darren Urban on May 30, 2012 – 8:57 am

The Cardinals made a roster move Tuesday, releasing cornerback Korey Lindsey (who had been acquired off waivers at the end of the preseason last year) to make room for undrafted rookie receiver Gino Crump, who played at the University of Arizona. Crump took part in the Buffalo Bills’ rookie minicamp on a tryout basis.

Lindsey spent most of last season on the practice squad, a healthy inactive for three games and failing to appear in the one game he did dress for. Crump had 65 catches for 610 yards last year for the Wildcats. The Cards had been down a receiver after cutting Marc Wilson last week when they signed linebacker Quentin Groves.
