The Arizona Cardinals Football Club today announced that the team has been awarded its waiver claim on defensive tackle CHRISTIAN TUPOU (Two-poe) from the San Francisco 49ers. 

Tupou (6-2, 300) played in five games with the Chicago Bears as a rookie last season and had three tackles. He entered the league with Chicago as an undrafted rookie free agent out of USC and split his rookie season between the Bears active roster and practice squad.

He spent a week on the Colts practice squad in the postseason before signing with the San Francisco 49ers. At USC, Tupou played in 42 career games (33 starts) and had 53 tackles, seven tackles for loss and 1.5 sacks.
