Rookie cornerback Jace Whittaker is making over $250,000 a season as a member of the Arizona Cardinals. He’s been on the practice squad all season and has been promoted to the active roster for some games. However, his salary will likely be less than that. In addition to his football accomplishments, Whittaker has given back to the community by donating $2,500 to feed 40 needy families in Tempe.
The football player was born on July 16, 1995, in Oceanside, California. He played college football for the University of Arizona and signed with the Arizona Cardinals as an undrafted free agent in 2020. His first season was at the University of New Hampshire as a defensive lineman, and he is now a cornerback for the Cardinals. The NFL Draft has been full of surprises for the young quarterback, who has yet to break a major league contract.
The Cardinals have protected DB Jace Whittaker in the 2020 draft, but it’s too early to know if he’ll stay or go. His name is a young athlete, and he’s still learning to play the game. He’s already playing for the same team as the veteran RB Josh Rosen, and is gaining experience each year. The new quarterback’s age is 26 years old, but the Arizona Cardinals have not yet disclosed his gender.
The Cardinals also recently elevated ex-UA cornerback Jace Whittaker to the active roster, where he’ll play four games for the team this year. The move could be good news for cornerbacks Antonio Hamilton (ankle) and Marco Wilson (ribs). Both players’ practice participation has gone down from full to limited on Wednesday and Thursday, respectively. While the former was a big surprise for the Cardinals, Hamilton is expected to start at least one more game.
The Arizona Cardinals are now down to 67 players, with two on the active roster and three on the practice squad. As of Sunday, the team waived Whittaker and cornerback Chris Jones. Several other players were released, including Byron Murphy Jr. and Anthony McKinney. They were added as free agents on Wednesday, but both will remain on the roster on Sunday. While both have different roles in the NFL, they are still in the process of building a relationship with the organization.
Brewer, originally signed as an undrafted free agent, has not played since 2012. On November 11, he was placed on injured reserve following a broken arm in Week nine. On December 13, he was activated and is now the long snapper for the Arizona Cardinals. After the injury, he is expected to resume his duties as a long snapper for the Cardinals. However, his recovery time will be limited.
