Brice, who played three seasons with the Green Bay Packers, was signed by the Cardinals in August.

Bullard played his first three seasons with the Chicago Bears before joining the Arizona Cardinals prior to the 2019 season. He appeared in nine games last year and started six.

Cantrell, who was an undrafted free agent, spent 2018 with the Los Angeles Chargers and was placed on the injured reserve in 2019. He signed with the Cardinals in June.

Coley started almost every game over his first two seasons with the Cleveland Browns, then played for the Indianapolis Colts last year.

Crawley, who has been in the league since 2016, signed with the Cardinals in August shortly after the injury to Robert Alford.

Former ASU running back Foster appeared in six Cardinals games last year and did not have any touches.

Jones played 13 games for the Cardinals over 2018 and 19, starting three games last year. Over this past season he had 22 tackles and six passes defended.

Richardson joined the Cardinals last year as an undrafted free agent and spent the season on their practice squad.

Walker, an undrafted free agent out of Kansas State, joined the Cardinals this offseason.

Ward, out of Hawaii, signed with the Cardinals as an undrafted free agent this offseason.

The Cardinals drafted Weaver in the sixth round of the 2020 NFL Draft. ESPN’s Josh Weinfuss reported that he may be a practice squad target.

Whittaker impressed at Cardinals camp, but was released. He’s another practice squad target, according to NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo.

Dixon was on the Cardinals’ practice squad last season.
