Cardinals cut Binford, Hall, Hartfield, Hubert

The Arizona Cardinals' wide receiver meeting room became less crowded on Wednesday as the team announced it cut three receivers.

Arizona Cardinals' wide receiver coach Darryl Drake didn't have enough seats in the meeting room for his players.

When the Cardinals began the day, the franchise listed 15 wide receivers on its roster, even though Arizona will start the regular season with somewhere between four and six players at the position.

On Wednesday, the Cardinals elected to slice into the abundance of depth the team had at receiver, as the team announced it cut three players at the position. Arizona released Harvey Binford, Marvin Hall and Chris Hubert, and also announced the release of cornerback/safety Trevon Hartfield.

Binford joined the Cardinals on March 29 after working out at the NFL Pro Player Combine at the Cardinals' training facility the previous weekend. A product of Lindenwood University-Belleville, Binford spent training camp in 2016 with the Green Bay Packers before being cut.

Hall was signed to a futures contract by the organization in December after signing with the Oakland Raiders last June as an undrafted free agent. A product of Washington, Hall totaled just 25 receptions during his collegiate career.

Hubert was a training camp standout for the Cardinals last season, and spent a portion of the year on Arizona's practice squad before earning a call-up to the active roster in the middle of the season. Hubert wound up on the roster for three games, but was never active during his stint with the team.

Hartfield spent the majority of the 2016 season on Arizona's practice squad before the team's injury situation forced the Cardinals to sign him to the active roster for the final two games of the season. 

All four players the team released Wednesday initially entered the NFL as undrafted free agents.
