Hodges recorded 13 tackles (12 solo) during Sunday's 20-17 win over the Packers.
Hodges has led the Cardinals in tackles for two straight weeks, and played a key role in holding the Packers to only 17 points Week 13. The veteran linebacker will draw another start against the Lions on Sunday, and work to record another strong outing.
Hodges recorded 10 tackles (seven solo) during Sunday's 45-10 loss to the Chargers.
Hodges logged his highest single-game tackle total of the season Week 12. The veteran linebacker entered the starting lineup during the second quarter of Sunday's loss after Josh Bynes suffered a thumb injury, and he made the most of his snaps. With Bynes having been placed on injured reserve, Hodges could see a starting workload for the rest of the 2018 season.
Hodges signing comes shortly after Arizona linebacker Jeremy Cash (knee) was ruled out for the season, so Hodges will add some quality depth to the position. Hodges appeared in 11 games with the Saints last season in a reserve role before being let go by the team in February.
Hodges was released by the Saints on Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
Hodges appeared in 11 games for the Saints as a reserve last season, but he only managed to record three total tackles, which made for the lease productive season of his NFL career. With New Orleans looking to claim offensive tackle John Theus off waivers, it was forced to waive Hodges to open up a roster spot.
