Cardinals Re-Sign CB David Amerson, Promote WR Jalen Tolliver


The Arizona Cardinals announced Tuesday that they’ve re-signed CB David Amerson and promoted WR Jalen Tolliver to their active roster.

Here’s the Cardinals updated practice squad:

  1. QB Charles Kanoff
  2. C Coleman Shelton
  3. RB Brandon Wilds
  4. DB Deatrick Nichols
  5. DT Vincent Valentine
  6. TE Gabe Holmes
  7. OT Rick Leonard
  8. K Zane Gonzalez

Amerson, 26, is a former second-round pick of the Redskins back in 2013. Washington waived him during the 2015 season and he was later claimed off of waivers by the Redskins.

Amerson signed four-year, $38 million extension with close to $18 million guaranteed with the Raiders back in 2016. However, he was released last year and later caught on with the Chiefs.

Kansas City signed Amerson to a one-year deal worth up to $6 million during the offseason, but wound up being released coming out of the preseason. The Cardinals recently signed him to a contract before cutting him loose last week.

In 2017, Amerson appeared in six games for the Raiders and recorded 18 tackles, no interceptions, a fumble recovery and four pass defenses.
