Cardinals cut LB Jessie Lemonier

·1 min read

The Arizona Cardinals announced a roster move Wednesday that seems to signal another signing. The team released linebacker Jessie Lemonier, freeing up a roster spot.

Lemonier was at the back of the depth chart at outside linebacker.

He did play well, picking up a second-half sack in the Cardinals’ 36-23 preseason win over the Cincinnati Bengals Friday night.

Five outside linebackers appear to be locks for the roster with Markus Golden, Devon Kennard, Dennis Gardeck and third-round rookies Cameron Thomas and Myjai Sanders. If they are going to keep six at the position, it now becomes a competition between Victor Dimukeje and seventh-round rookie Jesse Luketa.

The Cardinals now have a roster vacancy. They could add a tight end, where they have a few players out. They brought in two tight ends earlier in the week for a tryout.
