Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Follow Mike Jurecki on Twitter (@mikejurecki) The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Here’s the fifth and final version of my 53-man roster projection:OFFENSE (25)QUARTERBACKS (3): Carson Palmer, Drew Stanton, Blaine GabbertThe Cardinals will keep three quarterbacks on the active roster. Undrafted free agent quarterback Trevor Knight will handle the majority of the final preseason game.RUNNING BACKS (4): David Johnson, Kerwynn Williams, Andre Ellington, Elijhaa Penny.It looks like it will come down to Chris Johnson or Ellington for the final spot. T.J. Logan underwent wrist surgery and is likely out a total of 12 weeks. Depending on his recovery time he could return in Week 8 against the Rams in London.Undrafted free agent running back James Summers will likely get a heavy load in the final preseason game against the Broncos.RECEIVERS (7): Larry Fitzgerald, John Brown, Jaron Brown, J.J. Nelson, Chad Williams, Brittan Golden, Aaron Dobson.Jeremy Ross is fighting for a roster spot. Dobson has the ability to become a down-the-field threat because of his size and deceptive speed.Carlton Agudosi, Krishawn Hogan, Chris Hubert will likely be waived when cuts are announced and a couple could be options for the practice squad.TIGHT ENDS (3): Jermaine Gresham, Troy Niklas, Ifeanyi Momah INSIDE LINEBACKERS (5): Karlos Dansby, Deone Bucannon, Haason Reddick, Josh Bynes, Scooby Wright.It could come down to Bynes or Philip Wheeler for one spot. Wright will make the team strictly on special teams. Wheeler, Zaviar Gooden and Tre’Von Johnson are also competing for one of the inside linebacker spots.CORNERBACKS (4): Patrick Peterson, Justin Bethel, Brandon Williams, Tramon WilliamsSAFETIES (5): Tyrann Mathieu, Antoine Bethea, Tyvon Branch, Budda Baker, Rudy Ford.Harlan Miller and Ford are competing the final safety spot. If Miller clears waivers he would be an option for the practice squad.SPECIALISTS (3): LS Aaron Brewer, K Phil Dawson, P Matt Wile. (The Cardinals are reportedly interested in Panthers punter Andy Lee)Matt Wile has the advantage going into the final preseason game and provides experience after being on the roster late in 2016. Arizona will continue to evaluate other punters.Players are eligible for the practice squad if they clear waivers. Teams are allowed to up to 10.
