Cardinals acquired DE Vonnie Holliday from the Redskins in the Tim Hightower trade.
They also got a late pick back. Holliday is 35, but can still make an impact on passing downs. He'll work behind Calais Campbell and Darnell Dockett, probably only seeing snaps in Arizona's sub-packages. Holliday wasn't going to make the Redskins after they used a second-round pick on Jarvis Jenkins and signed Stephen Bowen, so he was just a throw-in to the deal.
