The Arizona Cardinals signed five players to future contracts on Wednesday after adding 15 the day prior.

Among the latest additions is defensive lineman David Parry, who started all 32 regular season games for the Indianapolis Colts in his first two NFL seasons (2015-16). He produced 78 total tackles and 4.0 sacks with the Colts before brief stints with the New Orleans Saints (2017), Minnesota Vikings (2018) and New England Patriots (preseason) in the past three years.

Receiver Rico Gafford, offensive lineman Sean Harlow, linebacker Shareef Miller and offensive lineman Shaq Calhoun were also signed by Arizona on Wednesday.

Calhoun started a game for the Cincinnati Bengals this year and played 10 games with seven starts as an undrafted rookie in 2019 with the Miami Dolphins.

The 5-foot-10, 185-pound Gafford appeared in eight games for the Oakland/Las Vegas Raiders over the past three years. A converted cornerback with sub-4.30-second speed on his 40-yard dash, he has two catches for 66 yards in his NFL career.

Harlow was a fourth-round pick in 2017 by the Atlanta Falcons. He spent a period with the Colts in 2018 before being cut and re-joining the Falcons for the past two years.

Miller, an outside linebacker, has one NFL appearances and also spent time with the Carolina Panthers practice squad since being drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles in the fourth round of the 2019 draft.
