PHOENIX, AZ (WCSC) - Andre Ellington was released by the Arizona Cardinals on Monday midway through his 5th season with the team that drafted him out of Clemson in 2013.
Ellington, a Berkeley alum, had seen his workload decrease in each of the last 3 seasons. The addition of Adrian Peterson earlier this year made Ellington expendable.
The former Tiger was a 6th round pick in 2013 and was a nice surprise accounting for more than 1,000 yards of total offense as a rookie. He followed that up by going for more than 1,050 total yards in his 2nd season.
