Redding, 35, is a former third-round pick of the Lions back in 2003. He spent six years in Detroit before he was traded to the Seahawks in 2009. The following year, Redding signed on with the Ravens as an unrestricted free agent and spent two years in Baltimore.
Redding followed Chuck Pagano to the Colts and finished out his career with the Cardinals. Arizona elected to cut Redding loose back in April and he hadn’t found any reported interest as a free agent since then.
Over the course of his 13 years in the NFL, Redding totaled 313 tackles, 35.5 sacks, four forced fumbles, 13 recoveries two interceptions, 24 pass defenses and a touchdown.
