Valentine signed a contract with the Cardinals on Tuesday.
Valentine's spot on the active roster comes following the placement of Robert Nkemdiche (knee) on injured reserve. The Cardinals signed Valentine off Seattle's practice squad, and will utilize the third-year pro as a backup to Rodney Gunter and Corey Peters.
Valentine played 14 snaps during the team's first preseason contest.
Valentine's 14 snaps was the first game action the Nebraska product received since landing on injured reserve last season. It's been almost a year coming, but Valentine seems ready to put his knee injury in the rearview mirror with the 2018 season on the horizon.
