It took two times, but the Arizona Cardinals were finally able to finalize a deal with veteran wide receiver Michael Crabtree.

According to ESPN’s Josh Weinfuss, the Cardinals have added Crabtree on a one-year deal that was inked on Wednesday night, and comes two weeks after the team had Crabtree in for a tryout during training camp.

The addition of Crabtree came on the same day that the Cardinals released wide receiver Kevin White, and on the same week that rookie wide receiver Hakeem Butler suffered a fractured hand.

Crabtree and the Cardinals were unable to workout a deal the first time around as the two sides were not able to agree on the financial aspects of the contract.

The release of White is another disappointing turn in his career. A former highly-touted first round pick of the Chicago Bears back in 2015, White has been unable to stay healthy and was limited to only 14 games during his four years in Chicago, which led to his exit from the Bears.

White had been hoping to turn things around with a fresh start in Arizona, but now he will have to try and find a new team to get on board with.
