The former first-round pick visited the Cardinals on Monday and signed with them Tuesday, the team announced. Jones, 27, took the field in 14 games last year, logging a sack and an interception.
Phased out by the ageless James Harrison and the young Bud Dupree, Jones was going to be a complementary player wherever he ended up going in free agency. In Arizona, he has the chance to work with a defense that is primed to make up for a lackluster 2016.
He's also going to Phoenix knowing well that head coach Bruce Arians plans on a full-tackle training camp, which means more of Jones' trademark hits on display.
Jones is likely a replacement for Alex Okafor, who signed a deal with the New Orleans Saints on Tuesday, and will serve as a situational defender in James Bettcher's versatile front. He'll look to improve upon a career-best two sacks, which he registered in both 2015 and 2016.
