The Cardinals added one more player to the roster Friday after being awarded defensive tackle Christian Tupou off waivers. Tupou was just waived by the 49ers, who had just signed him in January to a futures deal. Last year, he played for the Bears after coming out of USC as an undrafted rookie in 2013. In five games, the 6-foot-2, 300-pounder had three tackles.
That now brings the Cardinals’ roster to the maximum of 90 players, meaning that further signings in the offseason will require a corresponding release. It makes sense with the organized team activities beginning Tuesday to have the full compliment of 90 (although, once again, this work is all voluntary, so guys may not come from time to time.)
