Cardinals Elevating LB Devon Kennard & CB Jace Whittaker

The Arizona Cardinals announced that they are elevating LB Devon Kennard and CB Jace Whittaker from their practice squad ahead of Week 2.

Devon Kennard

Kennard, 30, is a former fifth-round pick of the Giants out of USC back in 2014. He played out the final year of his four-year, $2,364,560 contract with the Giants and signed a three-year, $18.75 million deal with the Lions in 2018. 

However, Detroit elected to cut Kennard in 2020 after being unable to find a trade partner for him. He signed a three-year, $20 million deal with the Cardinals shortly after. 

Kennard was among the team’s final roster cuts before being resigned to the practice squad ahead of the 2022 season.

In 2021, Kennard appeared in 15 games for the Cardinals and recorded 24 tackles, seven tackles for loss, no sacks, a fumble recovery, and two pass deflections.
