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.
