TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - The Arizona Cardinals have released Todd Heap, bringing an end to the former All-Pro tight end's brief, injury-plagued time in the desert.
Heap appeared in just two games with Arizona this season, catching eight passes for 94 yards. Over the past two seasons with the Cardinals, Heap appeared in 12 games, catching 32 passes for 377 yards and one touchdown.
A first-round draft pick by Baltimore out of Arizona State in 2001, he played for the Ravens for 10 seasons. He was an All-Pro selection in 2002 and made the Pro Bowl in 2002 and 2003. Heap is the Ravens' career leader in receiving touchdowns and second in receptions and yards receiving. He was released by Baltimore following the 2010 season.
To fill the roster spot, Arizona signed former San Diego tight end Kory Sperry.
