The Arizona Cardinals announced Tuesday afternoon that they have signed LB Jesse Luketa from the practice squad. Additionally, the Cardinals released veteran S Deionte Johnson.
Luketa was drafted in the 7th round of the 2022 NFL draft by Arizona. The former Penn State linebacker brings a lot to the table at only 23 years old. The move to bring Jesse up to the active roster comes after multiple NFL teams expressed their interest in him.
