With the free agent market starting to quiet down a bit, the Arizona Cardinals added a veteran to their defense, signing defensive lineman Frostee Rucker to a one year contract. Rucker is an eight-year veteran in the league who started all 16 games last season for the Cleveland Browns.

In 2012, he had 48 tackles, four sacks, a forced fumble and a pass defensed. He finished third on the Browns in sacks and 10th in tackles. Rucker joined the Browns in 2012 after playing the first six seasons of his career with the Cincinnati Bengals where he was selected in the third round (91st overall) of the 2006 NFL Draft out of USC.

Over the past two seasons, Rucker played in all 32 games with 27 starts and had four sacks each season to go along with 108 tackles. For his career, the 29-year old Rucker has appeared in 69 games (35 starts) and has recorded 195 tackles (82 solos) 11 sacks, four forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries, one interception, and eight passes defensed.

Tucker can play both end and tackle on the defensive line.
