NFL free agency 2015: Cory Redding gets 2-year deal from Arizona Cardinals

New, comments

The veteran gets nearly as much to sign as the team offered to pay Dockett for the season.

The Arizona Cardinals have reportedly made another addition to the defensive line. Veteran defensive lineman Cory Redding has signed a two-year contract with the Arizona Cardinals, giving the team another veteran presence on the line.

The deal is reportedly worth up to $6 million and Redding will get $2 million as a signing bonus.

Redding is 34 years old, 6-4 and 318 pounds. He has played 12 years in the league, the last three with the Indianapolis Colts, including 2012 when Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians was on the staff in Indy as offensive coordinator and interim head coach.

In 2014, he started all 16 games and had 35 tackles and 3.5 sacks.

He joins Corey Peters as new defensive line additions to replace the released Darnell Dockett and free agent Dan Williams, who signed with the Oakland Raiders.

With the addition of Peters and Redding, it also would make it seem like Tommy Kelly will not return.

As Kent Somers noted with Redding, you can tell what the Cardinals think of him compared to Dockett. They offered Dockett a one-year contract worth $2.5 million. They are giving $2 million in a signing bonus.

Are the Cardinals done? We will continue to stay on top of free agency.
