  • The Cardinals lost 5,144 defensive snaps in free agency, the most in the NFL and the only team to with more than 5,000 defensive snaps lost.
  • Five defensive players with at least an 81.0 grade signed elsewhere.
  • Two of the top-10 graded safeties leaguewide, Tony Jefferson and D.J. Swearinger, departed for other NFL teams.
