The Arizona Cardinals are firmly entrenched in training camp as they prepare for next week’s preseason opener against the Dallas Cowboys in the Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio.

But the team’s front office isn’t completely satisfied.

After the Cardinals met with free agent cornerback Brandon Flowers Wednesday, they’re bringing in another Thursday with the possibility of adding depth to the position.

Williams, 34, spent the last two seasons with the Cleveland Browns after eight years in Green Bay. In 2016, Williams started seven games for the Browns and had 36 tackles, five passes defensed and one interception. The former Pro Bowler has 30 career interceptions, which ranks seventh among active players, tied with Richard Sherman, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Brent Grimes.

Arizona head coach Bruce Arians said earlier this week the Cardinals would continue to be aggressive in bringing in talent for visits and possible signings.

“You’re going to see some guys coming in here real fast to build this roster just in case,” he said. “Either young guys haven’t performed well enough and there are so many good veterans on the street, that you want to have guys ready to go.”

Justin Bethel and Brandon Williams are competing for the starting cornerback spot opposite perennial Pro Bowler Patrick Peterson, but there are depth concerns. Those fears haven’t been helped by two corners — Elie Bouka and Jumal Rolle — both missing up to two weeks with injuries.
