The Cardinals have cut ties with Desmond Harrison.
The team on Wednesday announced it released the offensive tackle “soon after the news came out that he was being charged with assault against a female in North Carolina.”
The Cardinals have yet to comment further on the matter.

Harrison, 25, signed with the Browns as an undrafted free agent last May and started the first eight games at left tackle as a rookie before being benched and was later waived after the season, reportedly for missing multiple team meetings and being viewed as unreliable.
He was claimed off waivers by the Cardinals in June after being released by the Browns.
He was suspended several times while playing college football at Texas before leaving the program. Harrison later played collegiately at Division II West Georgia after spending two years away from the field.
