Cardinals add five players to roster on Wednesday

PHOENIX - The Arizona Cardinals announced on Wednesday that 5 new players would be joining the team.

The Cardinals announced in a statement that they have signed running back Rashard Mendenhall to a one-year contract, cornerback Jerraud Powers to a three-year contract, and quarterback Drew Stanton to a three-year contract.

The Cardinals also agreed to terms with linebacker Lorenzo Alexander on a three-year contact, as well as free safety Yeremiah Bell to a one-year contract.

The signing of Mendenhall reunites him with Bruce Arians who was his offensive coordinator in Pittsburgh.

"As a running back he's (Mendenhall) the total package. He's a big, strong, every-down back with speed who can pass block and also catch the ball," said Arians.
