The Arizona Cardinals, just like seemingly every other year, are making a “second wave” free agency signing.

Per James Jones of the NFL Network, the Cardinals have agreed to terms with free agent wide receiver Brice Butler on a two-year contract. Specifics of the contract are currently unknown.

It was reported that Butler would be visiting the Cardinals today, and it appears that General Manager Steve Keim did not want to let him leave without signing a contract.

Butler had his best season as a pro in 2017, hauling in 15 receptions for 317 yards and 3 touchdowns. Now in his sixth season, Butler figures to come in and compete for one of the top receiver positions, perhaps filling a hole that Jaron Brown once filled before he left this offseason.

At 6’3” and 220 pounds, Butler is another big receiver for the Cardinals to try and mold into a breakout player. Keep an eye out for the team to possibly pick up more wide receiver help in free agency and/or the NFL Draft at the end of the month.
