There was already a report and an article here about how two tryout players -- QB Phillip Sims and S Brandon Person -- were signed to the offseason roster. The team made those signings official and also announced a third signing of a tryout player.

In addition to Sims and Person, Arizona added safety Harold Jones-Quartey. All three were Division II players in college.

To make room for those three players, receiver Travis Harvey, tackle Kevin Palmer and safety Ross Weaver were released.

Jones-Quartey (5-11, 215) played collegiately at Division II Findlay and was a two-time all-conference selection and honorable mention All-American as a senior. He led the team in tackles each of the last two years, posting a career-high 105 tackles in 2014. Jones-Quartey began his college career as a wide receiver before moving to safety permanently in 2013.

Person (6-0, 220) totaled 246 tackles, 10 tackles for loss, eight INTs and six forced fumbles in three seasons at Division II Tiffin. He led the team in tackles all three years, with a career-best 92 tackles as a junior in 2013, and he was a three-time honorable mention all-conference selection.

Sims (6-4, 210) finished up his collegiate career at Division II Winston-Salem State in 2014, playing in all 11 games and completing 118-of-198 passes for 1,560 yards and 15 touchdowns. A high school All-American, Sims initially played at Alabama from 2010-11 before transferring to Virginia and starting four of 12 games played in 2012.
