The Cardinals are continuing to bring in reinforcements for their depleted secondary.

Antoine Cason, a cornerback who started all 16 games for the Chargers last season, has signed a one-year deal with the Cardinals, according to Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic. Cason is expected to get about $2 million, with incentive clauses that could make it more.

The signing of Cason comes two days after the Cardinals announced the additions of cornerback Jerraud Powers and safety Yeremiah Bell. So while the Cardinals’ secondary looked like Patrick Peterson and not much else at the start of free agency, Arizona is starting to build solid depth in the defensive backfield.

Cason, who had also drawn interest from the Browns and Lions, is No. 51 on our free agent Hot 100 list.
