Arizona Cardinals sign MLB Sean Weatherspoon

The Cardinals will be hoping that Weatherspoon can provide insurance inside for Daryl Washington, who is still suspended by the NFL for drug use and domestic abuse. It’s been a steep drop off for Weatherspoon since he was Pro Football Focus’ 5th ranked 4-3 outside linebacker in his 2nd year in the league in 2011 after being drafted in the 1st round in 2010. He’s played in just 20 of 48 games combined over the past 3 seasons, grading out below average in 2012 and 2013 and missing all of 2014 with a torn Achilles. 2011 remains the only season in his career that he’s played all 16 games and the only season in his career that he graded out above average as he missed 5 games as a rookie and graded out below average when on the field. He’s missed 33 games in 5 seasons. I thought he’d be a nice buy-low signing for a team on a one-year deal, but, much like the Falcons with Adrian Clayborn, I don’t think the Cardinals and buying quite low enough with this 1-year, 3.85 million dollar deal.

Grade: B-
