Cardinals Make Six Roster Moves

The Arizona Cardinals are placing CB Johnathan Joseph on injured reserve, promoting veteran K Mike Nugent and TE Seth DeValve from their practice squad, and activated DL Jordan Phillips, CB Kevin Peterson from injured reserve, according to Bob McManaman.

Arizona also released DL Trevon Coley on Saturday. 

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. 

He signed on with the Cardinals last month. 

In 2020, Joseph has appeared in four games for the Cardinals and seven with the Titans, recording 32 total tackles, one interception, one forced fumble, and six pass defenses. 

Nugent, 38, is a former second-round pick of the Jets back in 2005. He spent the past six seasons with the Bengals and was in the final year of his two-year, $3.5 million contract when the Bengals cut him loose in December of 2016.

The Giants signed Nugent to a contract during the season but he was cut loose soon after and caught on with the Bears. The Raiders signed Nugent to a contract during the 2018 preseason before he eventually landed on injured reserve.

Nugent signed with the Patriots in October of last year but was cut loose after a few weeks.

In 2019, Nugent appeared in four games for New England and converted five of eight field-goal attempts (62.5 percent) and 15 of 16 extra-point attempts (93.8 percent).
