With trade rumors swirling the Arizona Cardinals made a few under the radar signings, including the brothers of Calais Campbell and John Skelton.
Miami safety Jared Campbell and Fordham tight end Stephen Skelton are among 21 rookie free agents signed by the Cardinals.
Campbell comes to the Cardinals after playing in 10 games as a Hurricane last season. He finished his Miami career with 36 tackles and a forced fumble, but the majority of his impact was felt on special teams.
The younger Skelton started 11 games in his senior season and had 42 receptions. He experienced his best year in college when John Skelton was still on the team. When the Skelton’s were paired together, Stephen set career highs in receptions (63) and touchdowns (6).
The Cardinals needed to sign 49 players in order to fill the 90 man roster prior to the opening of training camp.
Arizona signed players on both sides of the ball and even included a couple of players from the Pac-12.
Oregon State receiver Aaron Nichols has been signed along with USC center and Tucson native Kris O’Dowd.
While at USC, O’Dowd started 36 games and was an All-Pac 10 selection. He was also named USC’s offensive lineman of the year in 2008.
