The Arizona Cardinals have signed veteran tight end John Carlson to a two-year contract.
He was cut by the Minnesota Vikings this week.
Carlson, 29, caught 32 passes for 344 yards and a touchdown last season in 13 games.
His season ended prematurely due to a concussion, his third in six NFL seasons.
A restructured contract couldn't be worked out. Playing two seasons for the Vikings, Carlson caught just 40 passes for 387 yards and a touchdown.
Carlson signed a five-year, $25 million contract two years ago. Cutting him will save $2 million against the salary cap.
