GLENDALE, Ariz. – In a bit of a surprising move, the Arizona Cardinals released defensive tackle Cory Redding on Monday.
The 35-year-old Redding played in 12 games for Arizona last season. He had 10 tackles, one interception and two fumble recoveries, one of which he returned for a touchdown. Redding was placed on injured reserve on January 12 with an ankle injury.
Redding signed a two-year, $6 million deal with the Cardinals on March 11, 2015. With his release, the Cardinals save $3 million against the salary cap, and will carry $1 million in dead money. Redding was to be a $4 million salary cap hit this season.
