The Arizona Cardinals have seen dozens of phenomenal free agent signings over the years. But which players stood out the most?

The Arizona Cardinals can use warm, dry weather to attract seasoned veterans to the desert. And they have succeeded year after year. But which five players are the team’s finest free agent signings?

You’re probably familiar with a few names on this list. But other names may surprise you. Forgotten names who played a big role with the Cardinals, even if the team was stuck in the doldrums for decades.

As with previous articles, we will only discuss free-agent acquisitions for the Phoenix/Arizona Cardinals. This article also won’t account for trades, so you won’t find DeAndre Hopkins on this list.

However, the names you will come across have become important staples for the franchise since their move to the desert. And to this day, fans still don their jerseys within the confines of State Farm Stadium.
