The Arizona Cardinals continue to workout players who have experience in the return game.

In doing so the team made a move on Friday morning before practice starts.

From the team:

The Arizona Cardinals Football Club today announced that the team has signed wide receiver Aleva Hifo (uh-LEV-uh / HEE-fo) and has released wide receiver Isaac Whitney.

Hifo (5-10, 187) originally entered the NFL in 2020 with Kansas City as an undrafted rookie free agent from BYU and spent training camp with the Chiefs last year. While at BYU, Hifo played in 51 games and had 118 receptions for 1,336 yards and seven touchdowns to go along with 55 carries for 233 rushing yards and four touchdowns. Hifo also had 29 kick returns for 598 yards and 23 punt returns for 232 yards in his collegiate career.

Clearly the Cardinals are trying to find the fit as a return man, could Hifo be the answer?

Welcome to the desert, Aleva.
