One of the Arizona Cardinals’ many free agents this offseason is cornerback Johnathan Joseph. Will he be back in 2021?
Joseph was a late-season addition, signing in November after he was released by the Tennessee Titans.
He played in four games, playing 48 defensive snaps, and had three tackles and a pass breakup. He suffered a neck injury and was placed on injured reserve.
Joseph will be 37 years old but it wouldn’t be surprising to see him want to play another season.
Joseph knows the defensive system, having played for Cardinals defensive coordinator Vance Joseph when Joseph was his position coach with the Houston Texans, where he spent nine years of his career.
The Cardinals still are woefully short at cornerback on the roster, so a veteran player like Joseph could be nice. He might not be what he was but he is a smart player and, if he is on the roster as depth, it wouldn’t be a bad thing.
That said, at his age, it is uncertain whether the Cardinals want to bring him back.
