Cardinals waived CB Shaquille Richardson, LB Glenn Carson, OG Nate Isles, LB Edwin Jackson, LB Andrae Kirk, TE Gannon Sinclair, CB Darren Woodard and WR Ryan Spadola.
Cardinals released ILB Lorenzo Alexander.
Alexander appeared in all 16 games last season, but was greatly diminished after suffering a Lisfranc injury in 2013. Now 32, it could be a while before Alexander gets a shot elsewhere. It's possible he's played his final down.
Cardinals released P Dave Zastudil.
Zastudil has been the Cards' punter since 2011, but was limited to two games by a groin injury last season. Going on 37, Zastudil has been punting since 2002.
Cowboys waived WR Phil Bates, CB Robert Steeples, DT Carlif Taylor, P Tom Hornsey and LS Casey Kreiter.
Bates made one appearance for the Seahawks last season. Going on 26, the former undrafted free agent is running out of NFL chances.
Emmanuel Sanders (hamstring) has resumed practicing.
Sanders didn't appear to be full go on Monday, but he's fully on track for the opener. Last year's WR7 will begin the year as a mid-range WR2 as the Broncos feel out new coach Gary Kubiak's system.
Lions placed CB Chris Owens on injured reserve, ending his season.
Owens saw 500 snaps as the Chiefs' slot corner last season, but was never in the mix for nickel duties in Detroit. The 28-year-old veteran should eventually be cut loose with an injury settlement.
Lions activated DT Haloti Ngata (hamstring) from the active/PUP list.
Coach Jim Caldwell hedged on Ngata's Week 1 status last week, but he's now on track for the opener. Headed into his age-31 season, Ngata has been mostly durable, never missing more than two games with injury.
Lions activated RB Joique Bell (knee, Achilles') from the active/PUP list.
It's not a moment too soon for the 29-year-old veteran, who isn't facing heat from just change-of-pace back Ameer Abdullah, but early-down prospect Zach Zenner. Provided he's in game shape, Bell will be the Lions' primary chain mover in Week 1, but he can't afford a slow start like the one he had in 2014. Abdullah is talented enough to begin stealing work from the word go.
