    Like the famous quote from the movie Frankenstein, “it’s alive!”

    After almost six days of not adding a single outside free agent, the Arizona Cardinals have signed linebacker Nick Vigil, per his agent.

    The 28-year-old linebacker started 12 games and played 16 games with the Minnesota Vikings in 2021 and totaled 85 tackles, four tackles for a loss, a sack and an interception for a touchdown.

    The pick-six happened to be off of Kyler Murray in Week 2 of the Cardinals 34-33 win.

    Arizona Sports’ John Gambadoro reports it’s a one-year deal for Vigil and that he will play weakside inside linebacker.

    Vigil was drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals in the third round of the 2016 draft and played there for four years. After a career-high 111 tackles in 2019, Vigil signed with the Los Angeles Chargers in 2020 and then with the Vikings in 2021. The Utah State product has 430 tackles, five sacks and has started 51 games in his six-year career.

    The Cardinals have now signed two outside free agents, and both have come from the Vikings. Jeff Gladney is the other signing, who was a 2020 first-round pick by the Vikings and comes with question marks after being acquitted of a felony assault charge.
