The Arizona Cardinals announced several roster moves on Wednesday including signing CB Johnathan Joseph to a contract.
Other roster moves for the Cardinals include:
- Cardinals activated CB Byron Murphy and OLB Devon Kennard from the COVID-19 reserve list.
- Cardinals designated G J.R. Sweezy and DL Rashard Lawrence to return from injured reserve.
- Cardinals placed CB Kevin Peterson on injured reserve.
Joseph, 36, is a former first-round pick of the Bengals back in 2006. He spent five years in Cincinnati before departing for a free-agent deal with the Texans in 2011.
Joseph was in the final year of his three-year, $22 million contract when he agreed to a new two-year contract in 2018. He signed on with the Titans this past May.
In 2020, Joseph has appeared in seven games for the Titans and recorded 28 tackles, one interception, a forced fumble, and four passes defended.
We had him included in our Top 50 Available 2020 Free Agents list.
Kennard, 29, 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 this offseason after being unable to find a trade partner for him. He signed a three-year, $20 million deal with the Cardinals shortly after.
In 2020, Kennard has appeared in five games for the Cardinals and recorded 10 tackles and two sacks. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 37 edge defender out of 112 qualifying players.
