Free agent defensive end Benson Mayowa visited the Cardinals on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports.

Mayowa previously has visited Washington, the Jets, the Seahawks and the Colts.

The Cardinals, who are switching to the 4-3, have a need for depth at the position. They also hosted Connor Barwin.

The Cowboys released Mayowa in March to clear $2.75 million in cap space.

He spent the past two seasons in Dallas, recording a team-high six sacks in 2016. But Mayowa had only one last season in playing 36.46 percent of the team’s defensive snaps.

Mayowa, 26, also has played for the Seahawks and Raiders since entering the league in 2013.

  1. Well Chandler Jones sacked Lil Russy Wilsonthree times last year alone, so you are 100% right that it’s totally reasonable that any member of the Cards could sack Lil Russy 3.5 times next season.

    3.5 sacks per season sounds like a future Cardinal to me.


    That’s rich coming from the fan of a team with one of the WORST PASS-RUSH’s in the NFL after the exodus of talent out of SEA these last few months.
    #2 your insult makes no sense, you do realize arguably the best pass rusher in the NFL who leads the NFL in sacks since 2013 & 2015 & lead the NFL in SACKS in 2017 with 17.0 & Tackles for loss with 28? Arizona has multiple excellent pass rushers.
