Cardinals Waive CBs Leonard Johnson & Deatrick Nichols, Promote Two

The Arizona Cardinals announced Friday that they’ve placed CBs Leonard Johnson and Deatrick Nichols on waivers and promoted WR Malachi Dupre and DT Pasoni Tasini to their active roster.

Johnson, 28, signed on with the Buccaneers as an undrafted free agent out of Iowa State back in 2012. He spent close to four years in Tampa Bay before he was released at the end of the 2015 season and later signed by the Patriots.

Johnson had brief stints with the Panthers, Bills and Giants before the Cardinals signed him to their active roster back in November.

In 2018, Johnson appeared in six games for the Cardinals and recorded 10 tackles and no interceptions.
