After visiting the Cardinals on Friday, Paris Lenon has signed a three-year deal, according to multiple reports.

This is just minutes after the Steelers resigned LB Larry Foote, who was a possibility to fill the linebacker gap for the Cardinals.

The 6'2", 235-pound Lenon took over the weak linebacker position for the Rams after they traded away Will Witherspoon to the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Cardinals lost Karlos Dansby to the Dolphins this offseason and were in need of a linebacker.

Last year Lenon, 32, played in 15 games for the Rams; he started 10 of them.

His best season in his nine-year career came in 2007 for the Detroit Lions. There, he recorded 88 tackles, two sacks, two forced fumbles, and returned an interception for a touchdown.
