The Arizona Cardinals shored up a number of practice squad players for the 2020-21 season.

The team announced the signing of seven players to future contracts on Monday.

The signings include wide receiver Johnnie Dixon, defensive lineman Lyndon Johnson, offensive lineman Sam Jones, wide receiver A.J. Richardson, cornerback Sojourn Shelton, cornerback Duke Thomas and punter Ryan Winslow.

All seven were members of the practice squad this season.

Of the seven, only Winslow saw game action on Sundays. Playing in two games, Winslow punted six times, averaging 48.5 yards per kick. Two of the six landed inside the 20-yard line, with four being returned for a total of six yards.

Outside of Winslow, only Sam Jones and Lyndon Johnson have seen regular-season action in their NFL careers. Jones saw five games as a member of the Denver Broncos in 2018, while Johnson spent three games of the same season with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
