The Arizona Cardinals picked a 2015 draft class of seven players over the course of three days, but they’re not done adding rookies to their roster.

The team also reportedly added a few undrafted free agent signings to their list of newcomers. There are 11 spots available before the 90-man training camp roster is filled — possibly more, pending cuts.

Wide receiver Jaxon Shipley was said to have been picked up.

The 6-foot, 190 pound former Texas Longhorn pulled in 218 receptions in his four collegiate seasons, which is third in program history.

He also finished with at least 577 receiving yards between multiple quarterbacks each season, and caught a pass in 47-of-48 games.

BYU offensive lineman Solomone Kafu reportedly signed a free agent deal with the Cardinals.

Kafu is listed at 6-foot-3, 354 pounds and benched 29 reps at 225 pounds as of his Pro Day evaluations.

Former Georgia Southern linebacker Edwin Jackson was also reportedly picked up.

Jackson is listed at an “athletic” 6-foot, 230 pounds and was a Sun Belt First Team selection. He started all 12 games of his senior season.

And, interestingly, there are reports of quarterback Phillip Sims, formerly of Virginia, Alabama and Winston-Salem, getting a tryout with the Cardinals.

Sims was the No. 2 pro-style prospect in the nation in 2010, and spent two seasons with Alabama before transferring after A.J. McCarron won the starting role. Head coach Nick Saban actually wrote a letter of recommendation to NFL scouts for Sims.

Other reported signees and/or mini/training camp invitees include:

  • Gabe Martin, linebacker, Bowling Green

  • C.J. Roberts, defensive back, Colorado State-Pueblo
  • Cariel Brooks, defensive back, Adams State


  • Andrae Kirk, linebacker, Florida Atlantic

  • Zack Wagenmann, linebacker, Montana

  • Trevor Harman, receiver, Shippensburg

  • Damond Powell, running back, Iowa
  • Alani Fua, linebacker, BYU
  • Kody Afusia, offensive lineman, Hawaii

  • Nick Seither, defensive lineman, Georgetown

  • Gannon Sinclair, tight end, Missouri State
