- WR Cody Hollister
- DB David Jones

Lewis, 23, wound up signing a three-year, $1.66 million contract with the Cardinals as an undrafted free agent out of Pittsburgh back in May. He was set to make base salaries of $465,000 and $555,000 over the first two years of the contract when the Cardinals cut him loose coming out of the preseason and later signed him to their practice squad.
Unfortunately, the Cardinals released him from their practice squad on Tuesday.
During his college career at Pittsburgh, Lewis recorded 103 tackles, 1.5 tackles for a loss, a sack, two interceptions and eight pass defenses over the course of 40 games.
