Brinkley played for the Minnesota Vikings the past four seasons, accumulating a career-high 117 tackles in 2012. He had two sacks and three forced fumbles in 15 starts.
Brinkley visited the New York Giants on Wednesday, then came to Arizona on Thursday and decided to sign with the Cardinals.
Brinkley is the sixth free agent signing for Arizona, seventh if the re-signing of safety Rashad Johnson is included.
