Cardinals sign OL Billy Price, cut WR Andy Isabella




 

The Arizona Cardinal announced a pair of roster moves on Tuesday for the active roster. They signed offensive lineman Billy Price off the practice squad of the Las Vegas Raiders and, to make room for him, released receiver Andy Isabella.

Price is in his fifth NFL season. He was drafted in the first round in 2018 by the Cincinnati Bengals, for whom he played for three seasons. He played for the New York Giants last season.

In four seasons, he has played in 58 games and started 34 of them, including 15 last season with the Giants.

The Cardinals gave him a look in the offseason, bringing him in for a visit back in May.

The move marks the end of Isabella's rocky time with the Cardinals. Drafted in the second round in 2019, he has never been able to crack the playing rotation consistently and has largely been a disappointment.

In four seasons, he finishes with 33 receptions for 447 yards and three touchdowns.

What the roster moves mean

The addition of Price is interesting.

Starting left guard Justin Pugh reinjured his elbow and had to leave Sunday's game.

If he has to miss time, it could mean that Sean Harlow would start at left guard, leaving only rookie Lecitus Smith as a backup center, something the team might not be ready to have him do.

If Hudson is injured, then Harlow would start at center.

It also seems that, with the release of Isabella, that receiver Antoine Wesley, currently on injured reserve and designated to return, is likely to return this week.

Practice squad moves

The Cardinals also announced moves on the practice squad.

They announced the signing of kicker Matt Ammendola, a move made to deal with Matt Prater's hip injury. This move was previously reported.

To make room for Ammendola, the Cardinals released quarterback Jarrett Guarantano, as Colt McCoy has returned to practice and is designated to return from injured reserve.
