The Arizona Cardinals added receiver depth on Thursday as Antoine Wesley is set to miss some time in training camp with a hip/groin injury. They announced the signing of former Las Vegas wide receiver Marcell Ateman.

Ateman spent all or part of the last four seasons with the Raiders after being drafted by them in the seventh round in 2018 out of Oklahoma State.

The 6-4, 215-lb wideout had 20 catches for 270 yards and a touchdown in 2018-2019. He spent part of 2020 on the Raiders’ practice squad and appeared in one game last season and spent time on the practice squad as well.

Wesley is expected to be out at least a week so the team needed more depth at receiver.

To make room for Ateman, the Cardinals released tackle Eric Smith.
