Former Bengals defensive end Frostee Rucker has reportedly agreed to terms with the Arizona Cardinals, according to XTRA 910's Mike Jurecki.

Rucker was the Bengals third-round pick out of USC in 2006 and played with the Bengals for six seasons before he left for the Cleveland Browns as a free agent. In his seven-year career, Rucker has made 153 tackles and 11 sacks. He was used on a heavy rotation with defensive ends ranging from Justin Smith to Michael Johnson and Carlos Dunlap.

The Cardinals struggled badly offensively, but their defense finished the 2012 regular season ranked at No. 12 (No. 5 passing defense, No. 28 rushing). Rucker should help add depth to the defensive end position not only as a pass rusher but as a run defender as well.
