The Arizona Cardinals have signed tight end John Carlson to a two-year deal.

Carlson, 29, has dealt with concussion concerns during his NFL career. He was limited to just 32 catches for 344 yards and a touchdown across 13 games for the Minnesota Vikings last season.

The two-year deal for Carlson will pay him $4.65 million.

It is unclear how Carlson will fit in with the Cardinals current game plan since he is not much of an option as a blocker. Perhaps Bruce Arians will get more vertical with the tight end position this season.
