TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- The Arizona Cardinals have released offensive lineman Elton Brown, signed free-agent offensive lineman Jeremy Bridges to a one-year contract, and added four free agents to their practice squad.

Filling out the eight-man practice squad yesterday were cornerback Rashad Barksdale, outside linebacker Chris Harrington, middle linebacker Lee Robinson and fullback Fui Vakapuna.

All were recently cut from other NFL teams.

Brown, a guard and tackle, was drafted by Arizona in the fourth round in 2005 but lost his starting position last season.
