The Arizona Cardinals could release tight end Jermaine Gresham this off-season. He has an out in his contract that the team may exercise.
The former 21st overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft made $5.25 million this past season. If they release him, according to Spotrac.com, they would have made him $14.4 million over two seasons.
If they release him, they’ll have to eat $5.75 million in dead cap space. He signed a four-year, $28 million deal with the team prior to the 2017 season.
The Cardinals, led by general manager Steve Keim and first-year head coach Kliff Kingsbury, will have to make the decision before the new league year.
If the team elects to keep him, he’ll make $6.25 million during the 2019 season. He’ll also make $6.75 million in 2020 before becoming a free agent after the season.
The 30-year-old Ardmore, Oklahoma native has played for the Cincinnati Bengals and the Cardinals in his career. He has spent the last four seasons with the Cardinals.
This season, he made 13 appearances, including 11 starts. He had nine receptions for 94 yards. This was his worst statistical season of his career.
Before this season, his worst season was in 2015 with the Cardinals. That season, he had 18 receptions for 223 yards and a touchdown.
His best game of the season came in Week 6 in a loss to the Minnesota Vikings. He had a 26-yard reception.
