The Arizona Cardinals have signed well-traveled linebacker Vic So'oto to shore up a position severely depleted by injury.
The Cardinals lost both starting outside linebackers — Sam Acho and Lorenzo Alexander — to season-ending injuries in Sunday's loss at New Orleans.
So'oto was with the Washington Redskins in the preseason but was released in that team's final roster cut on Aug. 31. He has played in 12 NFL games in his career.
So'oto first signed with Green Bay as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2011. Last year, he played with Washington, Oakland and the Packers.
In addition, Arizona signed linebacker Bruce Taylor to the practice squad. Taylor, an undrafted free agent, was released by Cincinnati in the preseason.
