Hood spent the past two seasons with the Cardinals. He started 14 games last season, recording 40 tackles and one interception. He also played on special teams and blocked a field goal and returned it 68 yards for a touchdown. He had five interceptions in 2007.
In a move to clear salary cap space, the Cardinals released Hood on Tuesday. The cornerback appeared in 31 games, 30 as a starter, since signing with Arizona as a free agent in 2007. He had 105 tackles and six interceptions. The Cardinals added a cornerback in free agency by signing Bryant McFadden, then drafted Greg Toler out of tiny St. Paul's College of Virginia in the fourth round on Sunday.|||||||
The Cardinals also released veteran running back Edgerrin James and defensive end Travis LaBoy. The three players were to have made $10 million next season, but because of the $7.5 million signing bonus given to LaBoy a year ago, the cap savings will be several million dollars less than what the three would have earned. Arizona is expected to sign new deals with linebacker Karlos Dansby, safety Adrian Wilson and possibly unhappy receiver Anquan Boldin.
Hood signed a five-year contract with the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.|||||||
