The Arizona Cardinals signed 21 undrafted free agents and we’ll take a look at them over the next four or five days.

Let’s get to know them before they are gone as we meet Central Michigan running back Jonathan Ward.

From the team:

Central Michigan running back Jonathan Ward (6-0, 202) finished his college career with 2,539 rushing yards and 28 touchdowns on 473 carries (5.4-yard avg.) while playing in 42 games. He also caught 98 passes for 909 yards with four touchdowns. A Kankakee, IL native, Ward ran for over 1,000 yards twice in his career, including a career-high 1,108 yards as a senior in 2019 when he was selected third-team All-MAC. A team captain last season, Ward ran for 15 touchdowns while starting all 12 games. He was a second-team All-MAC selection as a sophomore after rushing for 1,019 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Ward is a nice two-way running back as he has had success as a runner and a pass catcher out of the backfield.

He had a strong finish to his career in 2019 after a stellar sophomore season.

He could be an interesting foe for Eno Benjamin.
