Cardinals Waive CB David Amerson & WR Kendall Wright

     

The Arizona Cardinals announced Saturday that they’ve waived CB David Amerson and WR Kendall Wright.

Amerson, 26, is a former second-round pick of the Redskins back in 2013. Washington waived him during the 2015 season and he was later claimed off of waivers by the Redskins.

Amerson signed four-year, $38 million extension with close to $18 million guaranteed with the Raiders back in 2016. However, he was released last year and later caught on with the Chiefs.

Kansas City signed Amerson to a one-year deal worth up to $6 million during the offseason, but wound up being released coming out of the preseason. The Cardinals just recently signed him to a contract.

In 2017, Amerson appeared in six games for the Raiders and recorded 18 tackles, no interceptions, a fumble recovery and four pass defenses.

Wright, 28, is a former first-round pick of the Titans back in 2012. He played out his four-year, $8.218 million contract with the Titans before they elected to pick up his fifth-year option back in May of 2015.

Wright wound up signing a one-year contract with the Bears last March worth up to $4 million and was testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent for the second straight year when he agreed to a one-year contract with the Vikings back in March.

Unfortunately, the Vikings released Wright coming out of the preseason. Since then, he’s been on and off of the Cardinals’ roster.

In 2017, Wright appeared in all 16 games for the Bears and caught 59 passes for 614 yards receiving and one touchdown. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 40 receiver out of 116 qualifying players.
