The Arizona Cardinals have agreed to terms on a one-year deal for linebacker Ezekiel Turner, the team announced on Friday.

Turner, 25, will be going into his fifth year in the Valley after signing as an undrafted free agent out of Washington in 2018.

In 49 games as a Cardinal, the 6-foot-2, 214-pound Turner has accumulated 43 tackles on special teams and four on defense.

Turner is coming off of a 2021 season in which he was only able to play in five games due to a shoulder injury that saw him placed on injured reserve in Week 6.

He finished last year with two tackles on defense and two on special teams.

Turner’s best two seasons as a Cardinal came in 2020 and his rookie year in 2018.

His rookie campaign saw him earn PFWA All-Rookie honors after posting a team-high 22 tackles on special teams, with his 13 solo tackles leading the NFL.

In 2020, Turner finished tied for the team lead in special teams tackles (15) to go along with two blocked punt while making his first career catch on a fake punt.
