The Arizona Cardinals made a flurry of moves on Wednesday, one that may have been missed was the signing of veteran free agent cornerback Johnathan Joseph.

From the team:

Joseph (5-11, 186) is a two-time Pro Bowl selection (2011-12) who is in his 15th season in the NFL after playing with Tennessee (2020), Houston (2011-19) and Cincinnati (2006-2010). In his career, Joseph has played in 207 games (192 starts) and has 784 tackles (667 solo), 32 interceptions, eight forced fumbles, six fumble recoveries, 199 passes defensed. He has scored eight touchdowns in his career (seven interception returns and one fumble return) and leads the NFL since 2011 with 199 passes defensed.

The 36-year old Joseph played in seven games (six starts) with the Titans this season and had 29 tackles, one interception and one forced fumble after joining the team as a free agent in May. He entered the league with Cincinnati as a first-round selection (24th overall) in the 2006 NFL Draft out of South Carolina and spent his first five seasons in the league with the Bengals before signing as a free agent with Houston in 2011 where he played the next nine seasons. Now with the Cardinals, Joseph reunites with defensive coordinator Vance Joseph who was his position coach in Houston between 2011-13.

Joseph will wear jersey #25.

Welcome aboard Johnathan Joseph.
