Arizona Cardinals Sign Rookie DL Everette Thompson, Cut Braedon Clayson

The Arizona Cardinals made a roster move on Saturday just before they headed out to Ohio for the Hall of Fame Game on Sunday against the New Orleans Saints. The move involved cutting undrafted rookie guard Braeden Clayson and signing rookie free agent defensive lineman Everette Thompson.

According to the team's press release, Thompson is a rookie free agent who played collegiately at Washington. He tried out with the Cardinals during their rookie mini-camp on May 11-13. He was a two-year starter at defensive end with the Huskies who finished his career with 101 tackles (52 solos), seven sacks, 17 tackles for loss, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery in in 46 games played (26 starts). Thompson started all 13 games as a senior in 2011 and had a career high 41 tackles and two sacks.
