The Arizona Cardinals on Wednesday signed receivers Auden Tate and Isaiah Coulter to the practice squad, releasing offensive lineman Koda Martin in the process.

Tate has 35 games of NFL experience, all with the Cincinnati Bengals.

The 6-foot-5, 228-pound wideout recorded 40 catches on 80 targets for 575 yards in 2019, the best season of his career.

The 2018 seventh-round pick played in seven games last year, then spent the preseason with the Atlanta Falcons. He played parts of September through December on the practice squad of the Philadelphia Eagles.

Coulter, who is 6-foot-2 and 190 pounds, was a fifth-round pick by the Houston Texans in 2020.

He played once for Houston as a rookie and three games with the Chicago Bears in 2021, receiving one target without a catch.

Arizona can give Tate and Coulter, at the very least, practice reps leading into the season finale Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers.

No. 1 receiver DeAndre Hopkins missed the second-to-last game of the year Sunday with a knee injury, leaving Marquise Brown and Greg Dortch to take most of the reps in a loss to the Atlanta Falcons.

The Cardinals heavily utilized tight ends but also mixed in receivers Andre Baccellia (47% of offensive snaps), Robbie Anderson (23%), A.J. Green (16%) and Pharoh Cooper (9%).
