Cardinals Likely To Move On From C Rodney Hudson & WR Robby Anderson


With the NFL Combine officially in the books, teams are beginning to clear roster and cap space to have everything in order prior to the beginning of Free Agency on March 15. The Arizona Cardinals are expected to make a pair of moves to get some money off their books. The team is expected to part ways with Center Rodney Hudson & Wide Receiver Robby Anderson.

This pair of moves would save the Cardinals a total of $14 million in salary cap space – $2 million from Hudson and $12 million from Anderson.

Following the cut, Hudson, 33, is expected to officially retire after 12 seasons with the Raiders, Chiefs, and Cardinals – a career that included 3 Pro Bowl appearances and a second-team All-Pro selection.

Anderson came to the Cardinals during the season the season in Week 7 and recorded just 7 receptions in 7 games played. Previously, Anderson was with the Panthers, but the two sides parted ways after a sideline altercation in a Week 6 loss to the Rams.

The moves come as the first two significant decisions from new GM Monti Ossenfort and new Head Coach Jonathan Gannon.
