Cardinals waived CB Alfonzo Dennard.

Dennard doesn't even make it to training camp with Arizona after being claimed off waivers from the Patriots in May. The Cardinals must not have liked what they saw from Dennard in the spring. Look for Dennard to get another look in a team's camp this summer where he'll compete for a final roster spot.

Cardinals claimed CB Alfonzo Dennard off waivers from the Patriots.

Dennard gives the Cardinals depth after they failed to add a corner in the draft. He was plagued by a hamstring injury for most of last season, appearing in just six games. Dennard should compete for Arizona's No. 4 corner job. Jerraud Powers is currently penciled in as the starter opposite Patrick Peterson.

Patriots waived CB Alfonzo Dennard.

Dennard, a 2012 seventh-round pick, started 20 games over the last three seasons. Cutting him only costs the Patriots $14,000 in dead money and frees up roughly $1 million against the cap. They'll move forward with Malcolm Butler, Logan Ryan, Kyle Arrington and Bradley Fletcher as their top-four corners.

Alfonzo Dennard has spent the offseason working out with teammates Duron Harmon, Devin McCourty and Tavon Wilson in Arizona.

He's working to get back on the Patriots' radar after falling behind Malcolm Butler and Logan Ryan on the depth chart. Dennard seems to finally be over the hamstring injury that plagued him most of last season. Cutting Dennard would only cost New England $14,000 in dead money so his roster spot is far from secure. Dennard is in the final year of his rookie deal.

The Boston Globe considers CB Alfonzo Dennard a candidate for offseason release.

Dennard showed promising press-coverage skills his first three NFL seasons, but plummeted down the depth chart in 2014 as the Patriots brought in Darrelle Revis, Brandon Browner, and Malcolm Butler. Now owed a $1.59 million base salary, Dennard is overpaid. If cut, we wouldn't be surprised to see Dennard resurface as a starter elsewhere. He's still only 25 years old.
Feb 15 - 2:00 PM

Patriots placed CB Alfonzo Dennard (hamstring) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Dennard has missed the last three games and was already ruled out for Week 17. He'll now be sidelined for the playoffs. Dennard had just 15 tackles and an interception in six games this year.

Patriots activated CB Alfonzo Dennard (shoulder surgery) from the active/PUP list.

It puts Dennard on track to push sophomore Logan Ryan to start opposite Darrelle Revis while Brandon Browner serves his four-game suspension. With Kyle Arrington at slot corner, Dennard could tumble down the depth chart if he doesn't fend off Ryan. Dennard was hit-or-miss in 727 snaps a season ago.

Patriots CB Alfonzo Dennard is recovering from offseason shoulder surgery.

Dennard originally hurt his shoulder in Week 8. He hardly missed any time, but ended up needing a repair and sat out the entire offseason program. Dennard should be ready to go as a third or fourth corner when training camp rolls around. He may start opposite Darrelle Revis until Brandon Browner's suspension is up.

Patriots CB Alfonzo Dennard will report to a Nebraska jail to serve his 60-day sentence for felony assault and violating his probation.

Dennard's initial sentence was only 30 days, but 30 more were added after he violated his probation. He was also given 100 more hours of community service and an extra year of probation. Dennard could be released in 38 days with good behavior. By starting the sentence now, it is possible he will miss little if any of the Pats offseason program. Dennard was not spectacular in 2013 but projects as a starting cornerback for New England in 2014.

Patriots CB Alfonzo Dennard (knee, shoulder) is listed as questionable for the Divisional Round.

Patriots CB Alfonzo Dennard had 30 days added to his original 30-day jail sentence Thursday as a result of violating his probation.

Dennard's probation was originally part of his sentence for a felony assault conviction earlier this year. Dennard also must perform an additional 100 hours of community service on top of the 100 he already had, had his probation extended by one year, and must refrain from drinking alcohol. Dennard will begin serving time on March 1, and his sentence can be reduced to 38 days due to good behavior. Judge Stephanie Stacy warned Dennard by saying, "I want you to know this is your last chance."

Patriots CB Alfonzo Dennard (knee) has been ruled out for Week 13.

Dennard suffered a setback with his knee injury in the second quarter of Sunday night's win over the Broncos and was only able to practice on a limited basis this week. Kyle Arrington will replace him at right cornerback, with Logan Ryan playing in nickel packages.
