Tight End John Carlson has been signed to a two-year-deal by the Arizona Cardinals, just one week after being released by the Minnesota Vikings.

In a deal reportedly worth $4.65 million over two years, the former Seattle Seahawks player will join the Cardinals and could be the signing that changes the way the Phoenix based franchise plays offence in the upcoming season.

Carlson, a pass catching Tight End doesn't appear to fit with Arizona head coach Bruce Arians' mentality that TEs should 'block first, catch second' so could be a signal of intent to the other NFL teams.

Carlson brings with him a lot of potential after having three 300-plus-yard seasons, two of which being 50-plus-catch seasons with the Seahawks.

However after failing to perform in Minnesota, Calson has left the Twin Cities for the desert of Arizona.

His arrival is another good signing to a offence who already this off-season have extended Wide Receiver Larry Fitzgerald's contract with the Cardinals and appear to be going in the right direction.
