Arizona Cardinals sign veteran cornerback Tramaine Brock per reports

NFL: Denver Broncos-Training Camp Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

That was fast.

Hours after bringing in two veteran cornerbacks in Tramaine Brock and Morris Claiborne for workouts, the Arizona Cardinals have decided that Brock is their guy.

Brock has been in Denver with the Broncos and Vance Joseph the last two years as their nickel cornerback.

Working out of the slot he has struggled the last couple of seasons, but he has history and an understanding of Joseph’s defense and he has had success in the NFL.

That and he has been mostly healthy in his career and is likely coming a little bit cheaper than Claiborne would have and as we know, the Cardinals don’t have a ton of money left but still have a ton of needs left to fill.

Brock answers a need, has comfort in the defense and is a player who can be an immediate contributor on a team desperate for contributors.
