Veterans Alexander, Zastudil among 11 players released by Cardinals


TEMPE, Arizona — Outside linebacker and longtime special teams standout Lorenzo Alexander and veteran punter Dave Zastudil were among 11 players released by the Arizona Cardinals on Monday.

The team released three inside linebackers — Glenn Carson, Edwin Jackson and Andrae Kirk. The other players cut were cornerback Shaquille Richardson, guard Nate Isles, tight end Gannon Sinclair, wide receiver Ryan Spadola and cornerback Darren Woodard. Arizona also waived/injured wide receiver Travis Harvey.

The moves leave 76 players on the Cardinals' roster, one more than the limit for Tuesday's deadline.

The 32-year-old Alexander was captain for the Cardinals' special teams the past two seasons and made the Pro Bowl as a special teams player for Washington in 2012.

Zastudil, who turns 37 in October, missed all but two games last season with a groin injury.
