Cardinals Place S Antoine Bethea On IR, Promote LB Edmond Robinson


The Arizona Cardinals announced Tuesday that they’ve placed S Antoine Bethea on injured reserve with a torn pec and promoted LB Edmond Robinson to their active roster.

You can expect the Cardinals to place him on injured reserve in the coming days and add someone to their roster.

Bethea, 33, is a former sixth-round pick of the Colts back in 2006. He spent eight years in Indianapolis before signing a four-year, $21 million contract with the 49ers back in 2014.

Bethea was set to make a base salary of $5.25 million for the 2017 season when the 49ers released him during the offseason. The Cardinals later signed him to a three-year, $12.75 million contract this past March.

In 2017, Bethea appeared in 15 games for the Cardinals and recorded 57 tackles, one sack, five interceptions, a forced fumble, and nine pass defenses.

Robinson, 25, is a former seventh-round pick by the Vikings out of Newberry in the 2015 NFL Draft. He was in the third-year of a four-year, $2.348 million rookie contract and set to earn a base salary of $615,000 this season when Minnesota decided to waive him.

The Jets claimed him off waivers from the Vikings the day after he was waived. New York wound up waiving him with an injury designation two weeks later and eventually cutting him loose a few days ago.

Robinson just signed on to the Cardinals’ practice squad last week.

In 2016, Robinson appeared in 12 games for the Vikings and recorded two tackles and no other statistics.
