Cardinals Sign Sixth Round Pick Jorrick Calvin To Four Year Deal

According to cheeseheadtv's Brian McIntyre, cornerback Jorrick Calvin agreed to a four year deal with the Arizona Cardinals on Friday:

According to a league source, the Arizona Cardinals have signed sixth-round cornerback Jorrick Calvin.

Calvin’s four-year deal included signing bonus of over $88,000, and has a maximum value of over $2.6 million dollars.

Calvin started 12 of 13 games at cornerback for Troy University in 2008, totaling 76 tackles and a pair of interceptions, with nine pass break-ups, a forced fumble, and a pair of fumble recoveries. Calvin also handled the return duties, averaging 25.7 yards on 27 kick returns, returning one kick 95 yards for a touchdown. Calvin also averaged 9.9 yards on 15 punt returns, and returned a blocked field goal 65 yards for a touchdown.

Calvin missed the entire 2009 season after being ruled academically ineligible for missing an important assignment. At the time, he was with his family after the unfortunate deaths of two of his family members. Calvin has a lot of promise and certainly has potential if the coaching staff felt strongly about drafting him. He'll be competing for punt return duties and cornerback depth in 2010.

Update: Thanks to JoeCB1991 and AZcardinals480 for pointing out that wide receiver Juamorris Stewart was cut to make room for the Calvin signing. The Cardinals are at their roster limit, meaning five other players will be cut to make room for the remaining rookies that haven't signed yet. Someone that we've been pulling for may be cut in the coming weeks.
