PHOENIX - Plenty of changes in the Cardinals locker room Friday: John Skelton has been named the starting quarterback over Kevin Kolb, and 22 players cut from the team.
The biggest "name" player to be let go: linebacker Clark Haggans.
Haggans was drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2000 after playing football at Colorado State University. In March of 2008, Haggans agreed to a one-year contract with the Cardinals but had to be placed on injury reserves after a foot injury in December.
As an unrestricted free agent in 2009, Haggans signed a 3-year deal with the Cardinals and went on to register 74 tackles, five sacks and one fumble recovery in 13 games.
