Cardinals release guard Mike Iupati

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher 

The Arizona Cardinals have voided left guard Mike Iupati’s final year of his contract. This move was expected, but is now official. 

The 31-year-old had an injury-shortened season in 2018. He played in just 10 games this past season, before being sidelined with knee injuries. 


He’ll look to find his third home in the NFL. He is still a serviceable player in the league and may get another opportunity to start. 

Iupati has spent the last four seasons with the Cardinals. However, over the last two seasons, he has appeared in just 11 games. 

In his first two seasons in the Desert, he made 28 starts. 

By making this move, the Cardinals are eating $3.7 million in dead cap space for the 2019 season. 

He spent the first five seasons of his career with the San Francisco 49ers. He was the 49ers first-round draft pick (17th overall) in the 2010 NFL Draft. 

With the 49ers, he missed just five games. He missed four games during the 2013 season and one game during the 2014 season. 

In San Francisco, he made 75 starts.
