The move saves them about $2 million.

The Cardinals tried to shop him during the draft but no one was interested enough.

Slapping a second round tender on him, shopping him around and not finding much, then cutting him.

Not exactly a confidence-instilling beginning to Steve Keim's tenure as GM.

They tendered him before getting Palmer IIRC...they had a lot of cap room and could afford to tender him as depth.

Cutting him causes no dead $$$ since he was a RFA and tendered.

So, being on the Steelers for 2 weeks makes it worth mentioning him as such? Cool

Just nitpicking, but doubt most remember he was even with us.

I certainly had no idea, but meh... doesn't hurt anything to mention it I guess.

At least Keim didn't sign a 26 year old former undrafted rookie with 9 NFL career passing attempts to a 3 year $10 million dollar deal with a $3 million dollar signing bonus and $4.8 million guaranteed in the first two years.

Time for Mike Lombardi to put his money where his mouth is. If he was once pimping Hoyer for Bill Belichick, saying he would trade a 2nd round pick for him, it should be a no brainer for him.

Also, this could instead make the rumored trade of Mallet to Cleveland finally happen, where the Patriots would flip Mallet for a pick and then re-sign Hoyer as Brady's backup.

Wow, what a weird decision by the cardinals. I like Hoyer; maybe not as a starter, but I think he's definitely a capable backup. Weird to slap the tender on him only to cut him later. I would have preferred him to Mccoy for the niners, so i wish they had simply decided not to tender him haha. So now the cardinals have jettisoned 3 of their 4 starting quarterbacks from last year.

Chase Daniel was signed 3 hours into free agency this offseason by Kansas City to the contract noted above.

It is not really that weird when you look at the timeline of events;

We slap the tender on Hoyer, at that time our other QB's were Skelton, Lindley and Kolb.

Kevin Kolb was cut, Skelton was Cut.

Currently we sit with Hoyer and Lindley.

The team goes out and signs Drew Stanton to a 3 year deal.
The team trades for Carson Palmer as a starting QB.

The team cuts Brian Hoyer.

We tendered Hoyer because we had to, otherwise we would have been up the proverbial creek without a paddle heading into the offseason.

With our moves in the offseason it then becomes a no-brainer to not keep a 3rd string QB making $2M (unguaranteed) for one year when you are probably better off keeping a much cheaper Ryan Lindley as your #3 guy for now.

The issue is that the 2nd round tender was ridiculously high to begin with. It makes it look like Keim wasn't really sure what he was doing.
