Cardinals sign Mike Jones
The Cardinals also announced Wednesday that they have released safety Aaron Rouse, who was signed two weeks ago.
The 6-foot-4 Jones caught 131 passes for 1,853 yards in 49 games for Arizona State including 61 receptions for 744 yards as a senior in 2008.
He was signed by Houston as a rookie free agent last year but was released in September. Jones was put on Seattle's practice squad a month later and re-signed with the Seahawks in January before being let go in June.
Injuries have left the Cardinals shy on receivers. Larry Fitzgerald is out with a sprained right knee and Early Doucet has sat out practice this week with an abdominal strain. A third receiver, Ed Gant, has been limited in practice with a sore foot.
Rouse played last season for the New York Giants after two years with Green Bay. He had a whiplash-type injury in a multiple-car accident en route to training camp from Phoenix on Monday. The injury was not believed to be serious. Teammate safety Rashad Johnson was also in the car but was not hurt.
