THE SIDELINES : Phoenix Drops Rookie Lineman

From Times Wire Services

The Phoenix Cardinals waived rookie defensive lineman Mike Applewhite today, reducing their NFL preseason roster to 77 players--three under the league limit.

The 6-foot-2, 256-pound Applewhite was signed as a free agent by Phoenix in March out of East Carolina.

The Cardinals must trim their roster to 60 by Aug. 28 and then to 47 by Sept. 3--six days before their regular-season opener at Washington.
