The Arizona Cardinals signed wide receiver Greg Little to a one-year contract, the team announced Friday.

Little reached agreement with the team after concluding a tryout during the Cardinals’ minicamp this week.

A former second-round pick of the Cleveland Browns in 2011, Little also had a tryout with Arizona last month but suffered a hamstring injury that delayed his signing.

“I think he has tremendous talent, but most importantly right here, is just a chance for him to be able to step up and see what we can do with him,” Cardinals head coach Steve Wilks said prior to finalizing the agreement with Little.

Little has not played in the NFL since the 2014 season with the Cincinnati Bengals, when he had six receptions for 69 yards in six games, including one start.

The 6-foot-2, 215-pounder had a career-best 61 receptions for 709 yards as a rookie in 2011 and had 155 catches and eight touchdowns in his three seasons with the Browns.

To clear a roster spot for Little, Arizona waived wide receiver Cobi Hamilton, who has 18 career catches for 242 yards and two touchdowns.

The Cardinals also released linebacker Frank Ginda, who has never appeared in an NFL game.
