The Cardinals are parting ways with their second selection in the 2012 NFL Draft.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Saturday that the club is waiving cornerback Jamell Fleming, whom Arizona took in the third round last year.

Fleming appeared in 15 games as a rookie (three starts), recording 23 tackles. He did not play in the Cardinals’ 2013 season-opening loss at St. Louis.

The 24-year-old Fleming played collegiately at Oklahoma.

  1. I don’t know anything about this guy, but I wouldn’t mind the Browns bringing him in. The Browns need help in the secondary, so it’d be great for them to bring in a young guy familiar with Ray Horton’s system.

  2. As a Cards fan, poor work ethics and lack of ability to grasp playbook was his demise.
    Another wasted Rod Graves pick.

  3. The only people left who from responsible for Fleming being there are the people signing his paycheck. the Cards are deep at corner and probably feel better about extending someone like Cason then keeping him around. Comparing their last 2 third round picks makes it easy to forget about Fleming, and happy to see Graves go. Go Cards!

  4. kosarsmyidiot, keep in mind that Fleming is not a free agent and will have to go through the waiver wire since he doesn’t have enough time in the league yet. So it’s unlikely the Browns will get a crack at him.

  5. Fleming has trouble staying healthy long enough to get on the field. He was drafted to cover the slot but with Mr. Badger now in town to play that role & more, he is expendable. The cards are deep at corner & have a number of guys that can play multiple roles in the secondary that are more valuable.

  6. A lost draft for 2012.

    The 2nd rounder for Kolb and now a 3rd rounder for Fleming.

    Then again, the 2nd rounder for Kolb went to Green Bay and it selected Jerel Worthy. Stellar??
