Cardinals Agree to Terms With Harrington

The Arizona Cardinals announced today that they have signed sixth-round pick Chris Harrington to a three-year deal. The Cardinals are getting all their ducks in a row before the start of training camp. The linebacker out of Texas A&M marks the fourth rookie to have agreed to terms with the Cardinals.

Chris Harrington will be one of the many Cardinals battling for a spot in the defensive front seven in just a couple weeks. Harrington is an overall type of player who seems to have a bright future in the NFL. He played defensive end for Texas A&M for four years and started in three of them.

Harrington's biggest struggle will be acclimating to the new outside linebacker position the Cardinals will be using him for.

"For the majority of his career he has had his hand on the ground, so the stand up will be biggest adjustment," Harrington's former defensive line coach Stan Eggen told "He has got good strength; the best thing about Chris is his mental toughness and attitude. He is going to work on any thing he is deficient at and get better."

Eggen says Harrington was always accountable and consistent in his play. Last year, he came off of shoulder surgery, but Eggen says he did a good job of battling through it.

Harrington wrapped up his collegiate career with 36 starts in 49 games and registered 156 tackles, 15 sacks and 25 stops as a defensive end for Texas A&M.
