The @AZCardinals release LB Stewart Bradley and CB William Gay, creating some cap space.

Cardinals gave LB Stewart Bradley a 5-year, $30 million deal in 2011, he went to start 1 game that season and zero games in 2012.

Gay signed a 2-year, $3.2 million contract last season. He started 15 games, recording 57 tackles, 2 INTs and 3 FFs while struggling throughout the year in coverage.

Hey gents.. I was just about to post it. Interesting news but Bradley has been semi expected. Gay is a surprise and makes me wonder if they are going to pursue Toler.

I always thought Bradley was a odd signing anyway and, yeah, Toler should definitely be a priority now.

That has to be the plan. That or let both Toler and Gay go and target a different CB like DRC.

Toler needs to come back use Fleming as a #3 and we are fine. Do not want to go out there and create extra spots to fill with starting caliber players by not signing a guy like Toler.

We're about 5m under the cap now with these cuts. Once Doucet is released and Kolb is re-structured we'll be almost 15m under the cap. Re-signing Toler/Johnson and paying for 6-7 draft picks will be easy financially.

Neither was I but it makes sense if you think Toler and Fleming would be better by next year. No sense if paying Gay that much money to be a #3 or #4 CB.

Bradley was a given, amazed it took this long.

Gay was a suprise, $1.6 mil is not much, however that can go to Toler to keep him, hope we hear about his resigning before Friday.

Cutting Gay saves 3m, Bradley 3.5m... We are now 6m under the cap.

Gay doesnt save $3 mil

It was a 2 year 3.2 mil deal.

Vet min for 2012, makes it under 3 mil left if all was gauranteed anyway

That site says $250k dead money, small difference there.
