- The Cardinals also waived P Matt Wile and placed RB T.J. Logan on injured reserve.
- Arizona signed OLBs Bryson Albright and Obum Gwacham to their practice squad
This shouldn’t come as a big surprise, considering that Cardinals and Lee have been linked to one another for close to a week now after reports surfaced that Lee was available for trade and Arizona was a team to keep an eye on.
Lee, 35, is a former sixth-round pick of the 49ers back in 2004. After 11 seasons in San Francisco, he was traded to the Browns and spent a year in Cleveland.
Interestingly enough, the Browns traded Lee to the Panthers for a 2017 seventh-round pick.
Lee had another two years remaining on his seven-year, $21.6 million contract that included $3.6 million guaranteed and was set to make base salaries of $3.433 million (2017), and $4.134 million (2018) over the next two years.
In 2016, Lee appeared in nine games for the Panthers and totaled 1,533 punt yards on 36 attempts and four touchbacks.
