Cardinals waived WR Walter Powell.

He got beaten out by John and Jaron Brown in training camp. The 196th pick in May's draft, Powell figures to land with the Cardinals' practice squad.

Cardinals signed sixth-round WR Walter Powell to a four-year contract.

Powell (5-foot-11 1/8, 189) set Murray State receiving records all across the board during his career. He isn't overly explosive, as evidenced by a 4.63 forty and 31.5-inch vertical. Powell will have to show well on special teams.

Cardinals selected Murray State WR Walter Powell with the No. 196 overall pick in the NFL draft.

Powell (5-foot-11 1/8, 189) is the Racers' all-time leader in receptions (208), receiving yards (2,650), and receiving scores (29). He added three career special teams TDs, two on punt returns and one on a kickoff. Unfortunately, Powell ran 4.63 at the Combine with a 31 1/2-inch vertical, and sub-200-pound receivers without top speed are generally NFL long shots. Powell was also arrested last October for domestic violence, though charges were dropped. He's a low-ceiling special teams/slot receiver prospect who may have a tough time making the Cardinals' 53.
