Arizona Cardinals sign pass rusher to future contract

Douglas Jones-US PRESSWIRE

The offseason roster continues to be filled.

The Arizona Cardinals continued to do some early offseason work, signing linebacker Adrian Tracy to a future contract for 2014.

Tracy (6-2, 248) played in 16 games with the New York Giants in 2012 and had nine tackles and one sack as a defensive end while also collecting eight special teams tackles. He was released by the Giants following training camp last year. Tracy originally entered the NFL with the Giants as a sixth-round selection (184th overall) in the 2010 NFL Draft out of William & Mary. After spending his rookie season on injured reserve, Tracy spent the entire 2011 regular season and postseason on the Giants practice squad.

While at William & Mary, Tracy started all 47 games he played and recorded 283 tackles, 31 sacks, four forced fumbles and 12 QB pressures.

It appears that this will be his first experience playing 3-4 OLB.

When he was drafted by the Giants, the NFL.com analysis said this:

Another conversion prospect from the CAA. Arthur Moats went a few picks ago, and now Adrian Tracy goes to the Giants. Tracy is long, athletic and runs well. He lacks ability to stack the edge, however, and may not be strong enough to be a three-down player yet. That said, he has talent, and the ability to get to the quarterback.

Here are some highlights of his college days:
