The Arizona Cardinals continued the remaking of their secondary Friday with the signing of cornerback Antoine Cason to a one-year contract. writer Adam Caplan is reporting the deal is for $1.5 million that includes $500,000 in incentives, meaning Cason could earn up to $2 million in 2013.

Cason joins Jerraud Powers, who agreed to terms Wednesday, as new cornerbacks on the roster.

Cason, 26, starred at the University of Arizona before becoming a first round pick of the Chargers in 2008.
