Arizona Cardinals pick up free agent cornerback Alfonzo Dennard

One day after the New England Patriots decided to release their cornerback Alfonzo Dennard, the Arizona Cardinals have claimed Dennard off the waiver wire on Wednesday.
The Cardinals claimed Dennard who played three seasons with the Patriots before he was released on Tuesday since they will need a cornerback to replace Antonio Cromartie who signed a four year contract with the New York Jets two months ago.
Dennard was a seventh round draft choice of the New England Patriots in the 2012 National Football League Draft out of the University of Nebraska.
Due to injuries that limited his time on the gridiron, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick decided to replace Dennard as his cornerback after the Patriots drafted cornerback Darryl Roberts in the seventh round of the 2015 National Football League Draft.
Roberts played his college football at Marshall University.
Dennard will be competing for a starting cornerback position during the training camp sessions against his new teammates Patrick Peterson and Jerraud Powers before the start of the 2015 football season.
The Patriots decided to release Dennard as a cost cutting measure since they will save $1.5 million dollars.
The Cardinals decided to give Dennard another chance to play football for his fourth season since they need an extra defensive back on their roster before the start of the 2015 football season.
Dennard who is 25 years of age has some potential to reach the elite level of cornerbacks in the National Football League for his new team.
