The Arizona Cardinals announced three player signings to replace the three they released on Wednesday. After letting go of safety Brandon Person, receiver Chris King and guard Edawn Coughman, they have added players at the same position.

To replace the three, they signed safety Tyrequek Zimmerman, receiver Marquis Bundy and guard Jake Bernstein.

Zimmerman was on the offseason roster until after the NFL Draft. He signed in January to a future contract and was released May 4. He entered the NFL with the Seahawks as a rookie free agent in 2015. He was released on August 7, re-signed on August 9 and then was waived on August 31. A three-year starter at Oregon State, Zimmerman started 38 consecutive games to finish his career and had 266 tackles, two sacks, three interceptions and 12 passes defensed with the Beavers.

Bundy and Bernstein are newcomers.

Bernstein (6-3, 308) played in 48 games (41 starts) in four seasons at Vanderbilt. He originally signed with the Kansas City Chiefs as an undrafted free agent before being released on May 10. Bernstein ended his career by starting 34 consecutive games, including all 12 at left guard in each of the last two years. As a senior in 2015, Bernstein led the offensive line with 63 pancake blocks and helped sophomore running back Ralph Webb rush for 1,152 yards, the second-highest total in school history.

Bundy (6-4, 215) caught 31 passes for 395 yards and two touchdowns in 50 career games at New Mexico State. Last season, he appeared in all 13 games and caught seven passes for 110 yards. An Arizona native, he earned first-team All-Section 3 honors and was an honorable mention All-State selection as a senior at Boulder Creek High School in Anthem. Bundy participated in the Cardinals rookie mini-camp in May on a tryout.
