The Arizona Cardinals are signing Ramik Wilson, according to NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo.

Wilson was a fourth-round selection out of Georgia from the 2015 NFL Draft. He spent the first three seasons with the Chiefs before playing for the Rams last season. He was with the Jaguars this preseason but failed to make the cut to the 53-man roster.

He has appeared in 45 games, with 21 starts. In his four-year career, Wilson has a combined 147 tackles, one interception, five pass deflections, and two forced fumbles.

The addition of Wilson made sense, with the lingering injuries to Dennis Gardeck and Zeke Turner. Wilson also provides the Cardinals which much-needed inside linebacker depth. The Cardinals did work out former first-round pick Shane Ray yesterday.

There was an open roster spot for him after the Cardinals waived CB Chris Jones. The former undrafted free agent out of Nebraska played in every game for the Cardinals this season but saw his snaps dwindle to Kevin Peterson. With the Cardinals claiming Trevor Williams off of waivers, Jones was the odd-man out of the defensive back group.

Though Jones could be claimed off of waivers by another team, I would not be surprised if the Cardinals try to sign him back to their practice squad.
