The Arizona Cardinals reportedly made a roster move on Tuesday. According to Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post, the team has signed receiver Kevin Ozier to a three-year contract. Also, according to ESPN's Josh Weinfuss, they have also added tackle Cory Brandon on a two-year deal.

Ozier and Brandon were both given a tryout with the Cardinals last week in their rookie mini-camp.

Head coach Bruce Arians said after the first practice of rookie mini-camp he was pleased with some of the tryout players and disappointed in some of the rookies that head been there for a week already. He said the team would "swap out" such players.

Since the offseason roster is at the 90-player limit, there will have to be corresponding moves made.

Ozier is not unfamiliar to the situation. He was a walk-on at Arizona State, survived a coaching change and was given a scholarship. He was productive his senior season.

Now as a tryout player, he had to prove himself again. He did well enough to get a shot through OTAs for now. He is 6-2, 200 and ran a 4.62 40 at his Pro Day. He caught 23 passes, one for a touchdown, for the Sun Devils in 2013.

Brandon spent time with the Chicago Bears in 2013 and took an injury settlement after breaking his leg and suffering ligament damage. He is 6-7, 324 and out of Oklahoma.
