Sweezy, 31, is a former seventh-round pick of the Seahawks back in 2012. He played out his rookie contract with Seattle before signing a five-year, $32.5 million deal with the Buccaneers in 2016.

Sweezy was two years into his deal with Tampa Bay when they cut him loose in a move that freed up $6.5million of cap room. He signed a one-year deal with the Seahawks shortly after. 

The Cardinals signed him to a two-year, $9 million contract through 2020 in March of last year. He’s set to make a base salary of $3.5 million this season. 

In 2020, Sweezy has appeared in four games for the Cardinals and started each of them.
