The Arizona Cardinals, with their season coming to a close, have begun to build their offseason roster. They announced Tuesday the signing of 15 players to contracts for the 2021 season, known as futures deals.

All but one player spent at least the season on the practice squad for the Cardinals.

The following players are now under contract for next season:

  • TE Ian Bunting

  • DL Michael Dogbe

  • WR Krishawn Hogan

  • K Brett Maher

  • OL Koda Martin

  • S Chris Miller

  • RB Khalfani Muhammad

  • CB Picasso Nelson

  • WR A.J. Richardson

  • LB Terrance Smith

  • LB Reggie Walker

  • WR JoJo Ward

  • LB Evan Weaver

  • WR Isaac Whitney

  • CB Jace Whittaker

Two — Dogbe and Weaver — are former Cardinals draft picks. Dogbe was selected in the seventh round in 2019 and Weaver was a sixth-round pick in 2020.

Richardson has been with the team since 2019. Walker, Ward and Whittaker were part of the team’s undrafted rookie class in 2020.

Martin was signed in training camp. Hogan returns after joining the Cardinals in 2017 as an undrafted rookie.

Bunting recently worked out with the team. The rest joined the team at some point during the season.
