The Arizona Cardinals have cleared salary cap room by releasing Gay.||||||| A year ago, Gay signed a two-year, $4.95 million deal with the Cardinals. He started 15 games last season. He had 60 tackles, one sack and two interceptions. The move reportedly clears about $3.5 million in salary cap room.
