Dysert was drafted in the seventh-round of the 2013 NFL Draft by the Broncos. Since then he has also been on the roster for the Chicago Bears, Houston Texans, Buffalo Bills, and most recently Miami Dolphins. Dysert has only been on the 53-man roster once, in 2013 as a member of the Broncos.

One of the more heated offensive competitions was at backup running back. The Cardinals ended up keeping four but easily could have kept six if they had the room. One of them, Elijhaa Penny, is coming back to the Cardinals.
These players clearly made an impression on the Cardinals coaching staff. Cardinals fans could see the talent they had during training camp and preseason. Keep in mind any practice squad player can be claimed by another team. If another team does claim a practice squad player, said player must go on the 53-man roster.
