Cardinals cut TE Pope, keep seven WRs - [Full Article]

Former starting tight end Leonard Pope and four-year safety Aaron Francisco were among 21 players cut Friday by the Arizona Cardinals, who reached the NFL's 53-man roster limit.

The pass-crazy Cardinals kept seven wide receivers, including Lance Long, a member of Arizona's 2008 practice squad who caught just 14 passes in his senior season at Mississippi State. Whisenhunt said the injury to Early Doucet, out with fractured ribs, figured in the decision.

Other players cut include quarterback Tyler Palko, cornerback Wilrey Fontenot, linebacker Victor Hobson, wide receiver Onrea Jones, center Melvin Fowler and offensive tackle Oliver Ross.
