The Cardinals release Andy Isabella after more than three disappointing seasons


Wide receiver Andy Isabella’s tenure with the Arizona Cardinals has come to an abrupt end after years of trade rumors and rumors about his future in the desert. The Cardinals announced on Tuesday that they had released offensive tackle Billy Price off the Las Vegas Raiders’ practice squad and had replaced him with Isabella. Additionally, Arizona said that kicker Matt Amendola had been added to its practice squad and that quarterback Jarrett Guarantano had been released in exchange. Amendola, who was recently released by the Kansas City Chiefs, will be ready to go in Week 5 if Matt Prater is sidelined with an injury. Isabella was given permission to look for a trade in March, but nothing materialized, and the speedster is now on the way to waivers. At 4 PM ET on Thursday, if he clears waivers, he will enter the free agent pool. Isabella, a second-round pick of the Cardinals in the 2019 NFL Draft, arrived from the University of Massachusetts with great expectations, but he was never a consistent option in the Arizona system beyond a few flashy plays.
