Painter, 28, is a former sixth-round pick of the Broncos back in 2013. He lasted just over a year in Denver before he was waived and later signed to the Browns’ practice squad.
After a brief stint with the Giants, Painter signed on to the Dolphins practice squad midseason in 2015 and returned the team on a future’s deal. However, he was waived coming out of the preseason and later claimed off of waivers by the Redskins.
The Redskins re-signed Painter as an exclusive rights free agent this offseason but waived him as they trimmed their roster down to the 53-man limit. Painter has been on and off of the Cardinals’ roster this season.
In 2017, Painter has been active for three games.
