Cardinals Sign Three Tryout Players

Team adds quarterback Sims and a pair of safeties after rookie minicamp


New Cardinals quarterback Phillip Sims runs through a drill Monday as fellow QB Drew Stanton looks on.

The Cardinals have signed another quarterback.

Winston-Salem State's Phillip Sims, who worked out with the team on a tryout basis during last weekend's rookie minicamp, was one of three tryout players the Cards decided to keep after the three days' worth of


The Cardinals also decided to keep a pair of safeties who had been trying out: Tiffen's Brandon Person, and Findlay's Harold Jones-Quartey. To make room for the three, the Cardinals released tackle Kelvin Palmer, wide receiver Travis Harvey and cornerback Ross Weaver.

Sims joins a crowded quarterbacks room, which already had Carson Palmer, Drew Stanton, Logan Thomas and Chandler Harnish. That showed Monday, when Sims was relegated to onlooker while the other four took snaps in offensive work once the unit ran full 11-man plays during Phase 2 work.

Person and Jones-Quartey join a safety group that probably needs numbers but is deep enough that finding a way to stay on the roster will be difficult.

With the release of Harvey, rookie wide receiver J.J. Nelson has changed his number from 19 to 14.
