In Arizona, he appeared in 51 games with 32 starts. He had 131 tackles, 16 tackles for a loss, 19 quarterback hits, 13.0 sacks, three interceptions, seven forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries, and eight pass deflections.
The 28-year-old Witzmann from Houlton, Wisconsin last played with the Kansas City Chiefs last season, where he appeared in 16 games. He started 13 of those 16 games. 
He made 27 appearances in the NFL, including 13 starts, all with the Chiefs. He signed with the Houston Texans in 2014; however, he never played in a game.
