2011 Current Roster Status
Starter. On Roster.Bubble.In Position Battle 
Injured. Released. Practice Squad

Quarterbacks:
04 Kevin Kolb
 
6-3 218 U of Houston (Trade - Philly) Has methodically taken command of the Cardinal offense and looks increasingly solid
19 John Skelton
 
6-5 243 ( D5) High ankle sprain could "Wally Pipp" him in favor of Coyle. (He survived).
02 Richard Bartel 6-2 230 Tarleton State Looked almost as solid as Kolb and, in my opiinion, may have passed Skelton on the depth chart. Just has to eliminate occasional ball protection lapses (averaging one per game)
Running Backs:
26 Chris "Beanie" Wells 6-1 235 Ohio State (D1)
Running with more authority
36 LaRod Stephens- Howling 5-7 180 Pitt (D7a) Now our #2 RB who is emerging as a home run receiving threat.

29 Chester Taylor

5-11 213 Toledo Veteran FA pickup after Final 53 cutdown. Had poor yardage performance last year with Bears but is considered a skilled receiver & blocker who adds missing veteran leadership to the RB posiition

46 Alfonso Smith RB

6-1 207 Kentucky Moved up to #3 RB in wake of R Williams injury, and, vs. GB, played like a guy who belonged. Will be challenged by Powell. Survival may come down to which guy fits the offense better - a thumper or a Lite version of Ryan Williams. (He survived)
35 Anthony Sherman FB 5-10 242, UConn, ITo IR in midseason. Coaches love him but Mau'ia making it tough unless Cards decide to keep 2 FB's..
45 Reagan Mau'ia FB 6-0 260 Hawaii

Re-signed when Sherman went down in midseason. Cards love Sherman but the "dumpster with lips" is playing with passion and makes the decision difficult. (Tough decision made. Cut 9/2)

Wide Receivers:
11 Larry Fitzgerald (D1)
 
63 225, Pitt (D1)
Team's superstar now signed to long-term deal.
12 Andre Roberts WR 5-10 195 The Citadel (D3)
Faster than expected. Growing more reliable from game to game
18Stephen Williams WR 6-5 199 Toledo (UDFA) 8/6 (Red & White) - Pretty TD catch.

85 Early Doucet  WR

6-0 211 LSU (D3) Finally injury free and on verge of making a name for himsel..
17 Chansi Stuckey 6-0 196 Clemson (Jets, Cleve) Performance vs.Denver should nail him a spot.
89 DeMarco Sampson 6-2 204 San Diego St. Making an early impression. Earning a spot on the Final 53 may depend on whether or not we keep 6 wideouts.
Tight Ends:
86 Todd Heap 6-5 245 ASU (Ravens) Seems to be connectiong early with Kolb.
87 Jeff King 6-3 260 Va. Tech (Panthers)

8/5 (Sando) - Brought his signature leaping through-the-legs touchdown spike to Cardinals training camp. He showed it off after catching a touchdown pass in goal-line drills.

84 Rob Housler   Rookie pass-catching pheenom.
81 Jim Dray 6-4 251 Sanford (D7) It figures to be Dray or Spach, with Spach having more experience but Dray having more youth. Survived (so far)
86 Stephen Skelton 6-5 250 Fordham Cut, re-signed and cuit againin Week 9. Missed TD catch vs. Denver probably cinched what was inevitable anyway. Cut 9/2.
Offensive Linemen:
75 Levi Brown OT 6-5 323 lb Penn. St. (D! 2007)
2
Not perfect by any means but unchallenged starter at LY
71 Daryn Colledge T - G 6-4 308 Boise St. (Packers)

5-year vet who started for GB Super Bowl team. Figures to be leader of the O-line

63 Lyle Sendlein C (6-2, 305) -Texas (UDFA)
He remains a fixture at center
70 Rex Hadnot G/C 6-2 310 (Browns) Still gains the nod over the obese Lutui, but the Deuce is making a run.
72 Brandon Keith OG/OT 6-5 345 lb No. Iowa (D7) Back from injury and appears to be a fixture at RT
76 Taitusi (Deuce) Lutui G/T 6-4 350 USC (D2) Still too heavy but improving each week and making a run toward becoming a starter again (but he'll have to prove it). 
74 D'Anthony Batiste 6-4 318 Lousiana - Lafayette Some close observerssee him displacing someone like Womack. Made final cut (so far)
73 Jeremy Bridges G/T 6-4 326 So Miss (FA) Versatile backup and valuable for that reeason.
Defensive Linemen:
90 Darnell Dockett UT/DE 6-3 292 Florida State (D3) An emotional leader of defense
93 Calais Campbell (D2) 6-8 283, Miami (FL)

Returned to high level of play

91 Vonnie Holliday 6-5 288 North Carolina

Has been flying around making plays like a 23 year old. If he can stay healthy, he can be an important rotational contributor to our defense.

79 David Carter 6-5 294 UCLA, Late round pick is surprising everyone. Already our backup NT and pushing D Williams
98 Nick Eason 6-3 305 Clemson (Steelers) We think it will come down to the heavier more versatile Eason vs. the lighter, equally versatile Iwebema. Survived final cut (thus far)
96 Ronald Talley 6-3 286 Delaware (Green Bay) Cut and then re-signed to PS and then promoted after SF game.
92 Dan Williams NT 6-2 327 Tennessee (D1) Broke arm vs. SF. Placed on IR. Another one of the "fatties" playing himself into shape. Carter is pushing him but he ironically has (some of the) extra weight in his favor
Linebackers:
55 Joey Porter OLB 6-3 255  (FA Miami)
Seems to have enough gas left in the proverbial tank to provide a mucn needed pass rush.
58 Daryl Washington ILB 6-1, 230 TCU (D2) Improving from game to game
52 Stewart Bradley ILB/OLB 6-4 255 Nebraska (Eagles) Best off-season move (next to Kalb and Heap). Smart guy who dropped off in zone coverage to make pretty pick vs. Denver.
53 Clark Haggans DE/OLB 6-4 243 (Steelers) By no means perfect but a solid guy who makes plays.
51 Paris Lenon 6-2 235 Richmond 9 (FA Rams) Perfect in 3-man ILB rotation.
48 O' Brien Schofield 6-2 235 Wisconsin (D4) Arguably our best pass rusher who appears to be all the way back from knee injury 2 springs ago.
56 Reggie Walker 6-0 238 Kansas State Hasn't shown enough to prevail. Surprise survivor (thus far)
94 Sam Acho  6-2 262 Texas, Card coaches love him for great intellect and character, but he seems a half-step late to the ball to often. Made final cut (thus far)
Defensive Backs:
24 Adrian Wilson S 6-2 213 (D3) UNC
Inspirational defensive leader. Hasn't played all preseason (bicep) and won't until the medics clear him. For the time being, will he be able to help us? Or is he occupying much needed roster space?
25 Kerry Rhodes 6-3 209 Louisville (Jets(Trade) Foot surgery at Bye Week.
20 A.J. Jefferson CB 6-0 190 (UDFA) Fresno St (UDFA) Surprise starter - very DRC-like in athletic ability, but even more aggressive in coverage and more physical a tackler.
31 Richard Marshall 5-11 189 Fresno St. Panthers) New guy from Steelers who seems to be more like a McFadden than a DRC. But he's a good tackler who seems to know what he's doing out there (though less of a pick 6 home run type)
21 Patrick Peterson 6-0 219 LSU (D1) Injury to Toler makes him a lock as our #3 corner who could be elevated as jhe gains experience. Already has shown that he's downright scary returning punts.
37 Sean Considine 6-0 212 Iowa (FA7) Bye Week pickup when Rhodes went down.
27 Michael Adams CB 5-8, 178 - Louisiana-Lafayette (UDFA) He'd be a perennial Pro Bow; player if he was 6-inches taller. But he ain't; plus he's injured. Survived final cut
49 Rashad Johnson S 5-11 205 Alabama (D3) Stepped up to #1 unit when A-Dub went down and has done OK. Could have to battle Abdullah for a reserve safety roll depending on who we keep. Survived final cut.
23 Hamzah Abdullah  S 6-2 215 Washington State Had huge game vs. Denver (including some deluxe hitting - which we need when A-Dub can't go. Survived final cut
40 Pat Tillman,   (S) 5-10 208 (3) ASU While Pat  was serving his country, we promised  we'd "keep the seat warm" for him with a roster spot here on the BRS.  He will remain a permanent fixture here - as he will in our hearts.
Special Teams
04 Jay Feely K 5-10 208 (FA - Jets) Mr. Reliable
09 David Zastudl  P/H   Not bad, and presumably brought in for a reason, but I just don't see us keeping him. (Wrong! Survived final cut)
82 Mike Leach LS 6-2 240 William & Mary (FA Denver) Very solid - good "safety" on coverage teams.
Practice Squad:
30 Marshay Green CB 5-9 175 Ole Miss (UDFA) Victimized in GB game but looked a lot sharper vs. Broncs. Depending on how many DB's we keep, it could be Marshay vs. Bennett (unless we keep both or cut both). Cut 9/2
80 Brandon Williams LB 6-3 250 Texas Tech Signed after SF game. Formerly with Dallas. Had ACL earlier this year.
60 Ricky Lumpkin DL 6-4 306 Kentucky Cut 9/2
67 DJ Young OT 6-5 298 Michigan State Hasn't shown much (& O-linemen are invisible enough in any case. Cut 9/2
62 Ryan Bartholomew OC 6-1 310 R Syracuse  
83 Jaymar Johnson WR 6-0 176 Jackson St.  
32 Korey Lindsay CB 5-11 194 So. Illinois (FA Cleve) Cioffi is familar with him. We were thin at corner after DRC trade and Toler injury
54 Quan Sturdivant 6-1 241, UNC Smart. (Calls defensive plays). Diagnoses well. But gets rocked back in the gap. Cut and then re-signed to PS
Suspended:
Physically Unable to Perform (PUP)
Reserve/Injured/Non Football
38 Andrew Rich S 6-3 217 BYU  
Injured Reserve:
37 Mark LeGree 6-0 211 Appalachian St (Sea D5)  
22 Crezdon Butler CB 6-0 191 Clemson (FA Steelers) Horton knows and apparently likes him. We were thin at corner after DRC trade and Toler injury
06 Max Hall 6-1 201 BYU (UDFA)  
78 Floyd "Pork Chop" Womack G/t 6-4 328 Miss St. (10) (Browns) 9/2 On IR
15 Sean Jeffcoat 6-2 200Elon On IR 9/2
10 Max Komar 5-11 202 Idaho (UDFA)  
28 Greg Toler CB 5-11 191 St. Paul's (D4) mes.  2nd on the team in tackles (90). No sacks; one fumble recovery. 2 picks. D Urban - First year as starter up and down. J Gollin - Underrated.
66 Brad Thorson T 6-5 310 Kansas 8/7 - Released
34 Ryan Williams RB 5-9 212 Virginia Tech, 8/20 - Hurt knee/out for season. 8/6 (Red & White) - Nasty (good) block on highlight team reel. 8/5 (Somers) - Williams looked quick, sharp. It's early, though, and he's a rookie. Let's see him in games. Williams shouldn't be coronated yet, but he is very quick and tough. He ran with considerable anger in the goal-line sessions. 8/5 (Sando) - Scored twice on goal-line runs. Williams is an obvious threat to Wells. His quickness and ability to change directions without slowing much stand out.
