Arizona Cardinals add safety to practice squad

This move fills the practice squad again.

Andrew Weber-US PRESSWIRE

The Arizona Cardinals made a roster move on Wednesdy to fill their vacant practice squad slot. They added safety Orhian Johnson to take the place of Curtis Taylor, who was promoted to the 53-man roster on Tuesday, which was a response to Tyrann Mathieu being placed on injured reserve.

Johnson (6-3, 211) spent the preseason with the Houston Texans after signing with the team as an undrafted rookie free agent out of Ohio State. During his career with the Buckeyes, Johnson made 23 starts and totaled 131 tackles (76 solos), six interceptions, and 17 passes defensed. As a senior in 2012, Johnson started eight games and had 39 tackles, two interceptions and seven passes defensed. He was released by the Texans on August 31.

Johnson will wear jersey #33.
