Sendlein Cap Casualty for Cardinals

The Arizona Cardinals new look along the offensive line continues as the team has released center Lyle Sendlein.

The Arizona Cardinals extreme makeover along the offensive line continued as the team has released veteran center Lyle Sendlein.

Sendlein has been the anchor of the Cardinals offensive line since arriving in the desert in 2007. Sendlein, however, became dispensable after the team signed A.Q. Shipley away from the Indianapolis Colts.

Sendlein battled injuries a year ago and had a $3 million cap number for the 2015 season, so the move isn’t surprising. It’s tough to see someone like Sendlein go – whose ties to the area go back to his high school playing days – but it’s a part of the business that can’t be avoided.

Sendlein will likely land with a new squad and could still get a chance to compete for a starting job. In Arizona, Shipley and Ted Larsen will man the center position for the Cardinals.
