From the team:

The Arizona Cardinals Football Club today announced that the team has agreed to terms with safety Chris Banjo on a one-year contract. In accordance with club policy, terms were not disclosed.

Banjo (5-10, 207) returns to the Cardinals after playing in 26 games the past two seasons, including last year when he set a career-high with 46 tackles (33 solo) on defense to go along with two tackles on special teams while starting a career-high four games. He is an eight-year NFL veteran who has played 102 career games (six starts) with Arizona (2019-20), New Orleans (2016-18), and Green Bay (2013-16). A special teams standout, Banjo has 48 career special teams tackles to go along with 77 tackles (56 solo) on defense, three interceptions, eight passes defensed, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery.

The 31-year old Banjo originally entered the league with Jacksonville as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2013 out of SMU. Prior to joining the Cardinals in 2019, he played all 32 games in his last two full seasons with the Saints (2017-18).

Welcome back to Chris.
