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.
