The Arizona Cardinals have made another roster move, this time at linebacker.

From the team:

The Arizona Cardinals Football Club today announced that the team has signed linebacker Bryson Young and has released linebacker Reggie Walker.

Young (6-4, 242) originally entered the NFL in 2020 with Atlanta as an undrafted rookie free agent from Oregon and spent training camp with the Falcons last year. While at Oregon, Young played in 49 games and had 73 tackles, six tackles for loss, 2.0 sacks, one interception, three passes defensed and one fumble recovery.

Young is an interesting piece, as he was a bit of a pass rusher at Oregon, but was used as both an off ball and pass rusher in his brief time in the NFL.

Not sure what the plan will be for him in Arizona, but he may give the team a little flexibility being able to do both.

Welcome to the desert, Bryson.
