Cardinals sign ex-UA star Wright, switch punters
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) The Arizona Cardinals have signed former University of Arizona standout linebacker Scooby Wright.
In a flurry of roster moves Tuesday, the team also elevated punter Matt Wile from the practice squad. He replaces Drew Butler, who was released.
In another move, the Cardinals elevated quarterback Zac Dysert to the practice squad.
Wright, the 2014 Pac-12 defensive player of the year, was signed off the Cleveland Browns' practice squad. Wright will get an immediate chance to play at inside linebacker because Deone Bucannon (high ankle sprain) was among three players placed on injured reserve.
Safety Tyvon Branch (groin) and tackle Ulrick John also were placed on injured reserve.
Linebacker Reshard Cliett was re-signed to the Cardinals practice squad.
