Bryant, 31, is a former fourth-round pick of the Seahawks back in 2008. He spent six years in Seattle before he was released in February of 2014. The Jaguars signed him to a four-year deal, but he lasted just one year with them.

Last year, the Bills signed him to a contract during the preseason. However, he was unfortunately among their final roster cuts. It until November for Bryant to get another opportunity, this time with the Cardinals.

He signed a contract with the Cardinals back in May.

In 2015, Bryant appeared in six games and recorded five tackles and no sacks for the Cardinals. He played a total of 135 snaps last year.


Butler, 27, is a former third-round pick of the Chargers back in 2010. He was entering the third year of his seven-year, $51.8 million contract when he was released in a move that freed up $2,590,000 in available cap space for the Chargers.

The Cardinals signed him to a contract a few months ago.

In 2015, Butler appeared in all 16 games for the Chargers and recorded 43 tackles, a half sack, a forced fumble and a recovery.


Shipley, 24, wound up signing on with the Cardinals as an undrafted free agent out of Texans back in May of last year. He was unable to make the 53-man roster coming out of the preseason, but was later signed to the team’s practice squad at the start of the season.

The Cardinals elected to bring Shipley back on a future/reserve contract this past January.
