Cardinals sign Richard Quinn, cut two others


Every team has been making cuts over the last few days to pare their rosters down to 75 players, but the Cardinals actually added a player on Tuesday while also excising the necessary players from the team.

The Cardinals have signed tight end Richard Quinn, who was cut by the Bengals a couple of days ago. Quinn was a second-round pick of the Broncos in 2009, but got cut by the team in 2011. He played one game for the Redskins that year, but has not seen any regular season action since then.

Arizona is hurting at tight end with starter Rob Housler out with an ankle injury and backup Jeff King just getting back to work after a knee injury. Quinn had just one catch in 29 games with Denver, so he’s unlikely to help the team much as a receiver.

The Cardinals were at 76 players before Quinn’s arrival. They released safety Javon Harris and tight end Mickey Shuler to get to the 75-man limit.
