TEMPE, Ariz. (June 22, 2005) -- Linebacker Greg Carothers, a star in NFL Europe this spring, signed a one-year contract with the Arizona Cardinals.
Carothers was second in tackles (58) for World Bowl champion Amsterdam. He also forced two fumbles and made an interception.
San Francisco signed the 6-foot-2, 235-pound defender out of the University of Washington last year. He went to training camp with the 49ers, but was released Aug. 29.
Carothers was a three-year starter at Washington.
