The Arizona Cardinals have released offensive tackle Desmond Harrison according to 247 Sports.
This comes after Bleacher Report reported Wednesday morning that Harrison had been charged with strangulation and assault against a female victim.
The Greensboro Police Department confirmed to Yahoo Sports that charges were filed on Tuesday but it’s unclear if Harrison is in North Carolina currently, and they didn’t release any information on the victim of the crime.
Harrison was claimed by Arizona off of waivers last month after he was released by the Cleveland Browns following several missteps and the team no longer being able to rely on the second-year player.
After starting the first eight games of the season at left tackle for Cleveland, Harrison was benched in favor of Greg Robinson and was projected to be Robinson’s backup heading into the 2019 season.
It’s unclear what his role was going to be on the Cardinals’ offensive line but he likely would’ve competed with DJ Humphries, Korey Cunningham and rookie Joshua Miles for the starting left tackle position.
