Cardinals sign LB to 3-year deal

The Arizona Cardinals have agreed to terms on a three-year contract with outside linebacker Paris Lenon.

The 6-foot-2, 235-pound Lenon played 15 games with the St. Louis Rams last season, 10 as a starter. He had 44 tackles – 25 solo – and three forced fumbles.

He was released by the New England Patriots in training camp last year, then was signed by the Rams.

The nine-year NFL veteran has also played with Carolina, Green Bay and Detroit.

In another development, the Cardinals lost out on linebacker Larry Foote when he signed with his former team, the Pittsburgh Steelers.
