Max Starks and Ryan Lindley out in Arizona

The Cardinals have made their way to 75 players by dropping 13 players.

Among that baker’s dozen are three veterans. Kicker Jay Feely is out after losing the kicking competition and the team has also announced that tackle Max Starks and quarterback Ryan Lindley will join him in a search for new employers.

Starks signed with the team early this month, but wasn’t able to displace starting right tackle Bobby Massie or the team’s other options for the swing tackle role behind Massie and left tackle Jared Veldheer. Starks, who turned 32 this year, is coming off a year that saw him play two games for the Rams and could be nearing the end of the line after a long run with the Steelers.

The writing was on the wall for Lindley with the addition of Logan Thomas in the draft. Carson Palmer and Drew Stanton held the first two spots on the depth chart and Thomas will slot in behind them while Lindley tries to land a reserve spot elsewhere in the league.

Linebacker Keenan Clayton, linebacker JoJo Dickson, center Tom Draheim, wide receiver Reggie Dunn, linebacker Derrell Johnson, safety Orhian Johnson, wide receiver Kevin Ozier, defensive tackle Justin Renfrow, cornerback Brandon Sermons and running back Damien Thigpen have also been released.

    Somewhere, Max Hall feels a chill as he realizes his grocery-bagging job is once again in jeopardy…

    Wish Feely well, but it was time for a new, younger leg…one that could actually reach the end zone on a kickoff…

    Bobby Massie might be decent someday but right now he isn’t very good. If Starks couldn’t beat him out, it might be time for him to look at moving on to something outside of football.

    Panthers should at least work out Starks. Their tackles are awful….

    I get the feeling that Whisen-NOT secretly wants Ryan Lindley.

    Even though Whiz is no whiz and Lindley can’t play.

    There’s always Tampa. If you get cut from the tampa oline then it’s time to hang ‘em up.

    Not Lindley! That dude won me a fantasy championship back in the day.

    (Points were earned for sacks, turnovers, incompletions…)

    How many more Whisenhunt guys are left?? The guy is a good OC but terrible HC and evaluator.. Good luck Titans…

    Ryan Lindley was on the 2012 roster with Browns Quarterback Brian Hoyer. They cut Hoyer and kept him so he still has a chance to catch on somewhere else.

    Whiz was done when Lindley started.
