He was plagued by injury and played with Chicago last season, but Darryl Sharpton is looking healthy coming into training camp. The 6th year veteran was injured during training camp last season and played only in five games.
In those five games Sharpton had 15 combined tackles. It is not exactly what the Cardinals needed, but Sharpton can fill in where needed.
The team needed a fast, strong pass rusher that could go after the fast NFC West quarterbacks in Russell Wilson, Colin Kaepernick, and Nick Foles. Sharpton does not fit that, but can still contain players and hold running backs to a loss of yards. He can also cover ground if needed.
Look for Sharpton to make the roster as a rotational linebacker.
