Arizona Cardinals sign safety Chris Banjo to contract

NFL: Preseason-Miami Dolphins at New Orleans Saints Chuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona Cardinals released Michael Crabtree on Monday and today they have added a safety to the roster in his place.

The team announced that they have signed safety Chris Banjo.

From the team:

Banjo (5-10, 207) is a six-year NFL veteran who has played in 76 career games (two starts) with New Orleans (2016-18) and Green Bay (2013-16). A special teams standout, Banjo has 55 career special teams tackles to go along with 41 tackles on defense, three interceptions, seven passes defensed one forced fumble and one fumble recovery. The 29-year old Banjo originally entered the league with Jacksonville as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2013 out of SMU. He played all 32 games the past two seasons with the Saints. Banjo was released by New Orleans on August 31.

Banjo will wear jersey #38.

We will keep an eye on what this means for a player like Zeke Turner, who has been dealing with an injury all season, or if there is someone else to look out for.

Welcome to the team, Chris.
