The Cardinals made a big addition to their offense by trading for wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins on Monday and they kicked off Tuesday by making a move for a defensive lineman.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the team has agreed to a three-year deal with former Bills defensive tackle Jordan Phillips.

Phillips spent the last two seasons in Buffalo and came in at No. 72 on PFT’s list of the top free agents in the league. He had 31 tackles, 9.5 sacks and a forced fumble for the Bills last season and has recorded 15 career sacks over a career that began as a Dolphins second-round pick in 2015.

The Cardinals have several impending free agents along their defensive line. Zach Allen and Corey Peters remain under contract for the 2020 season.

  1. Browns and the Jets always win the offseason….now the Cards want a piece of that action. Offseason trophy cases full for some….while their inseason cases be like toilet paper aisles across the country.

  2. Hell yeah. One of my favorite DTs on the market. He had some monster performances last year. Great signing!

  3. He had a solid year in Buffalo last year but I’m glad the Bills didn’t pony up to re-sign him. I think his stats were better than his year and he’s going to be a disappointment for his cap hit. Hope I’m wrong and he keeps up the strong play.

  4. Sheesh, I don’t know what’s going on with the Cards but I like it.

    We may all die of the plague by opening day, but at least the Cards front office went out with its boots on, which is not a bet I would have been willing to take prior to the arrival of Kliff and Kyler.
