TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -Defensive end Travis LaBoy has signed a five-year contract with the Arizona Cardinals, the team said Tuesday.
LaBoy's deal reportedly is worth $22 million, with $7.5 million guaranteed.
The 6-foot-3, 260-pound LaBoy played four seasons with Tennessee after being drafted in the second round by the Titans - the 42nd pick overall - out of Hawaii in 2004. He is expected to compete with Bertrand Berry for the starting job.
In a reserve role last season, he played 13 games with six sacks, 20 tackles, four forced fumbles, one interception and one fumble recovery.
Overall, LaBoy appeared in 54 games with Tennessee, 20 as a starter. He had 19.5 sacks, 175 tackles (100 solo), five forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries and one interception. He had a career-high 6.5 sacks in 2005.
The team also signed tight end Jerame Tuman to a two-year contract. He appeared in six games, one as a starter, for the Pittsburgh Steelers last season before going on injured reserve Nov. 14.
Primarily a blocking tight end, he had spent his entire nine-year NFL career with Pittsburgh. He appeared in 121 games, 56 starts, with 43 catches for 500 yards and a touchdown. He also appeared in 10 postseason games with six starts. He caught seven passes for 57 yards and a touchdown in his playoff career.
Tuman was released by the Steelers on Feb. 8.
Ken Whisenhunt was offensive coordinator for the Steelers before becoming head coach at Arizona a year ago.
Meanwhile, linebacker Brandon Chillar, a free agent from the St. Louis Rams, worked out at the Cardinals training facility on Tuesday.
The Cardinals wanted to retain outside linebacker Calvin Pace but could not match the stunning six-year, $42 million contract, including a $20 million signing bonus, given to him by the New York Jets. Pace was a first-round pick in 2003 but started only six games in three seasons before last year, when he took over from injured Chike Okeafor and had by far his best pro season.
