Cardinals keep Rashad Johnson

The Cardinals have signed safety Rashad Johnson to a three-year deal, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported Monday night.

Johnson, 27, is entering his fifth NFL season. He was slated to become an unrestricted free agent on Tuesday. The 5-11, 204-pound Alabama product has appeared in 57 games (14 starts), notching 133 tackles, defending 10 passes and hauling in three interceptions. With stalwart Adrian Wilson no longer in the fold, Johnson could be in line for a bigger role in the Cardinals’ secondary in 2013.

Johnson was the the Cardinals’ third-round pick in the 2009 draft. Beanie Wells, the club’s first-rounder in that same draft, was released by Arizona on Monday. Also, the Arizona Republic reported Monday that LaRod Stephens-Howling, a seventh-rounder in 2009, could be departing in free agency.

    Well the excitement that I had when we got a new head coach is long gone with Boldin going to the 9ers and Harvin going to the Seahawks and the cuts of A-Dub and the Hyphen… Sigh…

    Nothing really changes with Keim at the helm…he’s been drinking the Bidwill koolaid for 14 years. Cheap solutions for big problems.
