Cardinals Claim DL Ifeadi Odenigbo, Release DE Jaquies Smith


Chris Tomasson reports that the Cardinals have claimed DL Ifeadi Odenigbo off of waivers from the Browns on Monday.

The Cardinals have already confirmed the news and announced the release of DE Jaquies Smith.

Odenigbo, 25, is a former seventh-round pick of the Vikings back in 2017. He was waived coming out of the preseason last year and later signed to the Vikings’ practice squad.

Minnesota brought him back on a futures contract this past January only to waive him a few weeks ago. Odenigbo wound up being claimed by the Browns, but was placed on waivers this past weekend.

During his college career at Northwestern, Odeanigbo recorded 61 tackle, 26.5 tackles for a loss, 23.5 sacks, five forced fumbles, two recoveries, and a pass defense over the course of four seasons and 37 games.
