TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — The Arizona Cardinals received cornerback Alfonzo Dennard from the New England Patriots on Wednesday on a waiver claim.

The 5-foot-10, 200-pound Dennard made 20 starts and played in 29 games in three seasons with New England, finishing with 92 tackles, five interceptions, 17 passes defensed, one fumble recovery and one forced fumble. Last season, he had 15 tackles, one interception and one fumble recovery in six games — four starts — before being placed on injured reserve on Dec. 27 because of a hamstring problem.

Dennard was drafted 224th overall in 2012 out of Nebraska.
