The Arizona Cardinals signed veteran linebacker Andre Branch to a one-year contract Tuesday.

The 30-year-old free agent spent the past three seasons with the Miami Dolphins after a four-year run with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Branch will provide depth at outside linebacker behind starters Chandler Jones and Terrell Suggs.

He had 25 tackles and 1.5 sacks in 14 games last season, and has 187 tackles, 25.5 sacks, 34 tackles for loss and eight forced fumbles in 95 career games (39 starts).

The Jaguars drafted Branch in the second round in 2012 out of Clemson. The Dolphins released him in March.
