Updated Cardinals' depth chart


Arizona announced its 53-man roster amid minimum fanfare. Most of the roster was expected, however there were a few moves that raised eyebrows. The decision to keep six receivers likely caused there to be only four cornerbacks kept. Six outside linebackers was also interesting, however there weren't enough options to keep more at inside linebacker.

A lot can still happen between Saturday night and "Monday Night Football," but here's my first stab at the Cardinals' depth chart for 2014.
