Schofield appeared in all 16 games for the Falcons in 2015, recording 30 tackles (24 solo), two sacks and a forced fumble. The former fourth-round pick will likely provide depth at the outside linebacker and defensive end positions without much IDP relevance.

In addition to signing defensive end John Abraham and offensive tackle Eric Winston on Thursday, the Cardinals released linebacker O'Brien Schofield and placed rookie receiver Ryan Swope on the reserve/Retired list. Linebacker Kenny Rowe was also signed.
