Braswell has been waived by the Cardinals following his arrest for driving under the influence, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Braswell, an undrafted free agent, signed with the team last month. He was brought in for his big-play potential as a pass catcher. However, he'll now face an uphill battle for a new opportunity, as he was let go on the same day he was officially charged with the DUI, according to Mollie Walker of the New York Post.
Braswell was arrested for driving under the influence on Friday in Put-in-Bay, Ohio, WTVG 13abc reports.
Braswell reportedly drove his vehicle off an embankment and into Lake Erie, but he did not appear to be injured. The undrafted big-play threat out of Youngstown State signed with the Cardinals shortly after April's draft, and he faces an uphill battle to earn a role in the team's crowded receiver corps even before factoring in any off-field concerns.
The Cardinals signed Braswell as an undrafted free agent shortly after the recent NFL Draft, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.
Braswell served as a big-play threat in four seasons at Youngstown State, averaging 19.3 yards per catch. That said, he managed just 51 receptions for 986 yards and 11 touchdowns in 40 career games. Braswell is among five UDFA wide receivers vying for a spot on the Cardinals' roster.
