Earlier this month , the Arizona Cardinals announced they released Hicks with one year left on his contract with NFL free agency approaching - a move that gave the team a reported $6.5 million in cap space.
Hicks had won back his starting position as inside linebacker for the Cardinals - after the team had told him to seek a trade - and finished the 2021 season with 116 tackles.
Hicks, 29, played the past three seasons in Arizona after spending his first four NFL seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles. He was a third-round pick of the Eagles out of Texas in the 2015 NFL Draft.
