Dysert, 26, has bounced around the league since entering the NFL as a seventh-round draft choice in 2013, and the Cardinals were the sixth club he’s been with during his four-year career. Arizona promoted him to the active roster last December in order to prevent losing him to Miami, but Dysert still has yet to take a snap in a regular season contest. Given that the Cardinals tendered him as an exclusive rights free agent earlier this year, Dysert had been scheduled to earn a minimum salary in 2017.

Arizona’s recent signing of free agent quarterback Blaine Gabbert signified that at least Cardinals signal-caller was likely to lose his roster spot, and Arizona seemingly Trevor Knight, a Texas A&M product who signed with the Cards as an UDFA, over Dysert. Gabbert and Knight will compete for snaps behind starter Carson Palmer and backup Drew Stanton.
