The Arizona Cardinals on Monday announced the signings of linebackers Stephone Anthony and Terrance Smith to the practice squad.

Anthony, 28, is a former first-round pick (No. 31 overall) by the New Orleans Saints of out Clemson in 2015 and led the team in tackles with 144 as a rookie.

The 6-foot-3, 245-pound linebacker has accumulated 152 tackles (97 solo), one sack, one interception, one fumble recovery, two forced fumbles and five passes defensed over the course of his six-year NFL career.

Anthony has appeared in 62 games (20 starts) for the Saints (2015-16; 2019) and Miami Dolphins (2017-18).

Smith, 27, entered the league with the Kansas City Chiefs as an undrafted free agent in 2016 out of Florida State.

The 6-foot-2, 235-pound LB played in 31 games over three seasons from 2016-18.

In that span, Smith tallied 36 tackles (25 solo), one sack, one pick and two passes defensed.

He also spent time with the Dolphins in 2019 and is the cousin of Cardinals wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins.
