TEMPE, Ariz. -- The Arizona Cardinals have signed 2010 sixth-round selection Troy cornerback Jorrick Calvin to a four-year contract.

In accordance with club policy, terms were not disclosed.

According to a news release, Calvin (5-11, 184) started 12 of 13 games played in his only season with Troy as a junior in 2008 and recorded 76 tackles, four tackles for loss, two interceptions, nine passes defensed, two fumble recoveries and a forced fumble. He also served as the team’s kickoff returner and averaged 25.7 yards per return (27 returns for 693 yards) which ranked first in the Sun Belt Conference.

He went to Troy following two seasons at East Central Community College in Mississippi. Calvin becomes the second member of Arizona’s 2010 draft class to agree to contract terms after the team signed Stanford tight end Jim Dray (seventh round) on Thursday.
