After a 10-6 season in 2013, it's clear things are headed in the right direction for the Arizona Cardinals. Head coach Bruce Arians and general manager Steve Keim made serious strides in one offseason. They added quality depth at key positions and maximized the talent of the players on the field on a weekly basis.

Nevertheless, the front-office duo is in no position to get complacent. Plenty of work still needs to be done. They have to find a franchise quarterback for the future and straighten out some of the bloated contracts that are holding the team back. 

The only way to get the salary cap under control is to start trimming the fat. That's how the Cardinals will keep pace in the ever-so-talented NFC West.

Without a doubt, the organization would like to punch its first playoff ticket since the 2009 season in 2014. 

With a current salary-cap figure of $120,622,419, according to Spotrac, let's take a look at five different salaries that Arizona should consider dumping during the offseason.
