Arizona Cardinals Sign Two Players to Practice Squad

Since DE Ronald Talley was promoted to the active roster of the Arizona Cardinals, practice squad moves were needed. There were another three moves made. Arizona released WR Brandyn Harvey from the practice squad and replaced him with another receiver -- Jaymar Johnson.

The other move has not yet been announced by the team, but thanks to our fellow bloggers at Field Gulls, we have learned that Talley's practice squad spot has been taken by S Mark LeGree, a 2011 draft pick of the Seattle Seahawks.

Get To Know A Seattle Seahawk: Mark LeGree - Field Gulls

I was wondering if LeGree has what it takes to make an NFL team. As it turns out, he hits harder than shots of bad tequila. Mark LeGree doesn't tackle people, he obliterates their insides while leaving the skin intact. He turns skeletons into gelatin, leaving opposing ballcarriers feeling like beanbag chairs. LeGree goes after opponents like they just slapped his mama. Rumor has it he corners the other team's quarterback before games and makes him apologize for being born. He wears #13 because that omen of misfortune was the only number badass enough to stay on his jersey.

Johnson was a sixth round pick by the Minnesota Vikings in 2008. He is 6-0, 176 lbs. He spent most of 2009 on the practice squad and missed the entire 2010 season with a broken thumb. He was waived in final cuts after this preseason. 

His Scouts, Inc. scouting report says this:

Johnson is very lean with average strength and excellent athleticism. He has seen most of his action as a punt returner with limited time at wide receiver. He is very capable fielding the ball and finding a crease as a returner but isn't explosive in this phase of the game. Johnson appears to be very raw with his route-running, but has flashed the tools to improve in this area.

He obviously is a project who may get called upon in case of injury to play on special teams. 

Regardless, let us welcome the newest members of the Arizona Cardinals. They are on Twitter (@mlegree13 and @jaymarjohnson).
