Arizona Cardinals: 5 impact undrafted free agents
By Scott Allen
The Arizona Cardinals signed a number of undrafted free agents after the draft and invited them all to rookie camp in May
Don’t knock an undrafted free agent until you see one get out there and work hard enough to make to Arizona Cardinals training camp. Then after that, some even make it to a regular season roster or practice roster.
Not all of them will pan out but some may just do well enough to find themselves with the Cardinals long enough to get a good look here and possibly turn heads elsewhere if there isn’t room enough in Arizona.
James Folston Jr., OLB, Pittsburgh
Folston’s numbers at Pittsburgh weren’t much to write home about. However knowing linebacker is a major need for this team, they should be giving pretty much anyone under the sun a look.
Folston played four years at Pittsburgh. He did only see seven games on the field in his first two years but played 21 over the last two.
He ended his career at Pitt with 3.5 sacks overall. That went along with 47 tackles, again mostly over his last two seasons.
He’s a long shot to make it past training camp but at linebacker you never know with this team. We wish him the best in Arizona.
