Veteran becomes ninth defensive back on roster Darren Urban

The Cardinals, seeking some depth at cornerback, signed De'Vante Bausby Friday as they continue to fill out their bye-week roster.

Bausby was released by the Broncos last week.

Bausby is the fifth cornerback on the roster, behind Patrick Peterson, Byron Murphy, Dre Kirkpatrick and Kevin Peterson. Defensive coordinator Vance Joseph also said veteran Prince Amukamara, currently on the practice squad, is "close" to being able to play and contribute.

"We've got guys we have acquired the last couple of weeks that have been working in the package," Joseph said. "Hopefully they'll be ready to play against Miami.

"(Prince) is a very bright guy and who has played in games, so when his time is called, he'll play well for us."

In his 19 career NFL games, Bausby has three pass deflections. A one-time undrafted free agent has spent time with the Chiefs, Bears and Eagles, including winning a Super Bowl in Philadelphia while on the practice squad. He then landed in the Alliance of American Football with San Antonio, even making an interception of current Cardinals coaching assistant Mike Berkovici at one point.

When the AAF suspended operations, Bausby landed in Denver with the Broncos in 2019.
