The Arizona Cardinals have agreed to terms with seventh-round pick RB LaRod Stephens-Howling, Scout.com has confirmed. According to a league source, Stephens-Howling will sign a three-year, $1.219 million contract that includes a signing bonus worth $34,050.

The former University of Pittsburgh back was a non-combine invitee, but got a boost in draft stock after an outstanding Pro Day.
