Cardinals Tried Out 4 Including Former Patriots WR Aaron Dobson

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Cardinals brought in former Patriots WR Aaron Dobson for a tryout on Tuesday.

  • Arizona also worked out WR Jonathan Krause, LB Zaviar Gooden, and QB Mike Bercovici, according to Adam Caplan.

Dobson recently worked out for the Colts but was signed to a contract.

Dobson, 25, is a former second-round pick of the Patriots back in 2013. He was in the final year of his four-year, $3.428 million rookie contract that included $1.173 million guaranteed and set to make a base salary of $872,505 in 2016 when he was waived by the Patriots.

The Lions later signed him to their active roster and he’s been on and off of their roster since then.

In 2015, Dobson appeared in eight games and caught 13 passes for 141 yards receiving and no touchdowns.

Gooden, 26, is a former third-round pick of the Titans back in 2013. He had two years remaining on his four-year, $2.681 million rookie contract that included a $506,016 signing bonus when he was back in September of last year.

Gooden later signed with the Lions but, unfortunately, sustained a torn hamstring last August that led to him being placed on injured reserve at the start of the season. The Lions brought him back shortly after this year’s draft only to cut him loose coming out of the preseason.

Detroit later signed to the team’s practice squad and was called him up to their active roster. However, the team ended up waiving him from their practice squad earlier this month to make room for LB Steve Longa. 

In 2016, Gooden has appeared in one game and recorded three total tackles.
