For the second time this week, the Arizona Cardinals signed a recently released Atlanta Falcons defender, inking outside linebacker Brooks Reed to a one-year contract on Saturday.

NFL Network reports the deal is worth $2 million.

The move comes two days after the Cardinals signed former Falcons cornerback Robert Alford, who was released on Tuesday, to a three-year deal. Reed was released by Atlanta on Friday.

Reed, who turns 32 on Feb. 28, spent the last four years with the Falcons, primarily playing defensive end. He had one sack and four QB hits last year, his lowest marks since 2015, giving him seven sacks and 20 QB hits in 60 games (34 starts) with Atlanta.

Reed spent the first four years of his career with the Houston Texans, totaling 14.5 sacks and 34 QB hits in 60 games (52 starts).

He will play outside linebacker in Arizona, which is switching back to a 3-4 scheme.

Meanwhile, Cardinals guard Mike Iupati's contract officially voided on Friday, which will make him a free agent when the new league year begins in March. As a result of a previous restructure, the voided deal leaves $3.7 million in dead money on Arizona's cap.

Iupati, 31, joined the Cardinals in 2015 on a five-year, $40 million deal and reached the Pro Bowl in his first season with Arizona. However, he missed 21 games over the last two seasons due to injury, including six this season.

Iupati was a three-time Pro Bowler and one-time first-team All-Pro selection in his first five seasons with the San Francisco 49ers.
