The Arizona Cardinals announced Wednesday they have added linebacker Tanner Vallejo to the practice squad. To make room for Vallejo, the team released offensive lineman Ian Silberman from the practice squad.

Vallejo was originally claimed by the Cardinals off waivers in February from the Cleveland Browns. He was waived on Sept. 1, claimed by the Washington Redskins and played in nine games for them before he was released on Saturday.

Vallejo, a Boise State product, was selected by the Buffalo Bills in the sixth round of the 2017 NFL Draft as the 195th overall pick.

The 6-foot-1, 230-pound linebacker appeared in 13 outings with Cleveland in 2018 and recorded 20 tackles. He forced two fumbles and on special teams added seven more tackles.

As a rookie in 2017 with the Bills, Vallejo played in 14 games, racking up four tackles.
