Arizona Cardinals grab their first undrafted free agent

The Arizona Cardinals wasted no time in grabbing their first undrafted free agent
Welcome to Arizona Matthias Farley. The former Notre Dame defensive back tweeted that he is headed to the Cardinals as an undrafted free agent. That took almost no time at all.
You have to think the Cardinals were close to drafting Farley if he already knows he’s coming to Arizona. The Cardinals seem to be stocking up depth on the defense.
Seemingly this sounds like good news to fans and supporters. I’m always in favor of bringing in players from Notre Dame. It’s a quality program. Even if he doesn’t work out in Arizona, I like Arizona giving him the shot.
Arizona State fans should know Farley well. Farley, who stands at 5’11, had an interception against the Sun Devils in their game against the Irish back on October 5, 2013. Farley had 41 tackles and one interception in 2015. His lone interception for the 2015 season came in a 42-30 victory at Pittsburgh. Farley’s season high in tackles was in his bowl game against Ohio State on January 1st at University of Glendale Stadium.
If Farley makes the team, his first career game would also be at University of Phoenix Stadium. So at the very least, he knows the field and the building. That’s a good start for the young man.
