Cardinals Cut Harlan Miller, Peli Anau

Posted May 9, 2018

With rookie minicamp looming, roster shrunk to 90-man limit

Safety Harlan Miller, here during Phase Two work earlier this week, was released Wednesday.

The Cardinals will bring in their rookies Thursday and their undrafted choices will be signing their contracts, so Wednesday, there was a little more work to do to make sure the team was able to get to their limit of 90 players.

That came with the release of safety Harlan Miller and defensive tackle Peli Anau.

Miller, the team’s sixth-round draft pick in 2016, played in a total of seven games over two seasons while splitting time on both the active roster and practice squad. He had an interception in the 2016 season finale. Anau was on the practice squad last season.

The Cardinals, after agreeing with 24 undrafted rookies, needed to trim nine players from the roster before those rookies inked their deals prior to the start of Friday’s rookie minicamp.

The Cardinals are bringing in three undrafted safeties – Washington’s Zeke Turner, Appalachian State’s A.J. Howard and Missouri Western’s Jonathan Owens – to add to veterans Antoine Bethea, Budda Baker and Rudy Ford.
