TEMPE, Ariz. -- The Arizona Cardinals have agreed on a contract with second-round draft pick Cody Brown of Connecticut.

Terms of the four-year deal were not disclosed when the club announced the signing Tuesday.

Brown, a Coral Springs, Fla., native, was a unanimous All-Big East first-team choice as a senior in 2008 after starting all 13 games at defensive end.

Brown recorded 11 sacks, five forced fumbles and a career-high 56 tackles last season. His 11 sacks were good for second in the Big East and rank as the third-highest single-season total in school history.
