The Arizona Cardinals continue to address the cornerback position, we will see if it makes a difference.

The team announced on Thursday they have signed veteran cornerback Darqueze Dennard.

From the team:

Dennard (5-11, 205) is a seven-year NFL veteran who spent his first six seasons in the league with Cincinnati before playing last year with Atlanta. In his career, Dennard has appeared in 85 games (30 starts) and has four interceptions, 310 tackles (228 solo), three forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, 3.0 sacks, 27 passes defensed and seven tackles for loss. The 29-year old Dennard entered the league with the Bengals as a first-round selection (24th overall) in the 2014 NFL Draft out of Michigan State.

He played eight games (six starts) last season with the Falcons after starting 20 games in his last three seasons with the Bengals (2017-19). Dennard was coached by current Cardinals defensive coordinator Vance Joseph for two seasons (2014-15) while the pair were together in Cincinnati.

Welcome to the desert, Darqueze.
