He is the latest veteran to sign with the Cardinals this off-season. He is the third player — who was released since the end of the season — to sign with the Cardinals. 

Robert Alford signed a three-year, $22.5 million deal with the Cardinals. Brooks Reed also signed a one-year, $1.625 million deal with the team.

The 30-year-old Little Rock, Arkansas native will be joining his third NFL team. Besides playing four seasons for the Bills, he also played four seasons with the Miami Dolphins. 

This past season, he made 13 appearances, including 12 starts. He had 21 receptions for 184 yards. 

This was his worst season of his career. Previously, before the 2018 season, his worst season was his second season in 2012 when he had 18 receptions for 212 yards and two touchdowns. 

He did not register a reception in four games this past season, including the final two games of the season. He had one reception for six yards on Dec. 9 against the New York Jets. 

His best game of the season was four receptions for 40 yards against the Green Bay Packers on Sept. 30.
