Cameron Malveaux poached by Cardinals

NFL: Buffalo Bills at Miami Dolphins Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Dolphins will lose a developing defensive end, according to a report from the Miami Herald’s Barry Jackson. The Arizona Cardinals are signing Cameron Malveaux off Miami’s practice squad, pulling him to the team’s 53-man roster.

The Dolphins signed Malveaux as an undrafted free agent in 2017, with the University of Houston product spending most of his rookie season on the practice squad before appearing in four games at the end of the season, recording a sack, five tackles, three tackles for a loss, and one quarterback hit. This year, he again started the season on the practice squad, then was promoted for the team’s Week 5 game at the Cincinnati Bengals. He appeared in five games for Miami, recording six tackles, but was released and re-signed to the practice squad two weeks ago.

Malveaux was a player the coaches seemed to like and was developing through his time on the practice squad and the active roster. With the Cardinals, he will get a chance to prove he can continue that development into a rotational, depth defensive end the rest of this season.
