Cardinals sign new cornerback to 53-man roster

De’Vante Bausby is the latest addition to the final 53 for the team filling a roster spot

NFL: Denver Broncos at New England Patriots Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

The Cardinals have added a new defensive back to their team.

De’Vante Bausby is a 4 year NFL veteran, having run a “wind-aided” 4.22 40 yard dash, leaping 37 inches at his Pro Day per his Wikipedia page.

He signed with the Chiefs as an undrafted free agent, and has bounced around the league from Kansas City, Chicago, and recently, Denver.

That familiarity with a 3-4 defense and a need for depth for Arizona with a few guys banged up might be a reason he came to Arizona, as they don’t have a lot of depth past Peterson, Murphy and Kirkpatrick.

What does this mean for local kid Prince Amukamara? Not sure, but he’s still on their practice squad.

Bausby also spent time in the short-lived Alliance of American Football and has 43 tackles and 6 pass deflections in his career.

He has been courted by a number of teams, that is why the Cardinals were signing him to the active roster.
