Arizona released running back Beanie Wells on Monday, saving $1.5 million in cap room. The 2009 first-round pick was limited to eight games last season but had a solid 2011, running for 1,047 yards and 10 TDs. He's only 24.
The Arizona Cardinals shed roughly seven million dollars in salary for 2013 with Friday's release of veteran linebacker Stewart Bradley and defensive back William Gay. The timing for Bradley couldn't have been worse. Bradley reportedly was in customs, returning from his honeymoon in Australia when he received the news of his release, according to ESPN.
The Philadelphia Eagles have released defensive tackles Cullen Jenkins and Mike Patterson. Jenkins signed with the Eagles as a free agent in 2011. Patterson was the longest-tenured player on the roster.
