The Cardinals made a couple roster moves today, as they have re-signed S Chris Clemons, and also brought in CB Joel Wilkinson, a former Aussie Rules player.

The 6-foot, 190-pound Wilkinson is an Australian Rules Football player who is going to get a shot to play cornerback. He follows former 49ers running back Jarryd Hayne from down under to the NFC West. Hayne finished the year on the 49ers practice squad.
The 24-year-old Wilkinson played for the Gold Coast Suns and the Northern Blues, which proves that we’re way ahead of our friends in Australia when it comes to team nicknames.
