Arizona Cardinals Sign Kenny Iwebema

Iwebema_mediumThe Arizona Cardinals got their second draft pick signed today when fourth round pick, Kenny Iwebema agreed to terms and again financial terms weren't disclosed. He agreed to a three year deal as did Tim Hightower late last week. Iwebema, a former Iowa Hawkeye, is competing with fellow rookie, Calais Campbell and veteran Bryan Robinson for playing time in the defensive line rotation. He had a great sophomore season at Iowa but his junior and senior seasons didn't live up to the expectations set forth by his 48 tackle, 7 sack sophomore season.

The Cardinals hope that the 6'4, 274 pound Iwebema can reclaim that sophomore dominance and he'll be reunited with defensive line coach, Ron Aiken, who coached him at Iowa. The Cardinals now have 5 of their seven picks signed and it'll be interesting who will get cut when all the picks are signed. When all 7 picks are signed, they'll have to cut two players to get down the max roster size for training camp.
