The Cardinals made a roster move Friday, adding the MVP of the USFL championship game to the wide receiving corps.
Victor Bolden Jr., who had six catches for 64 yards and the game-winning touchdown for the Birmingham Stallions, signed a one-year deal.
To make room on the roster, the Cardinals released undrafted rookie wideout Jared Smart.
The 5-foot-8, 178-pound Bolden signed with the 49ers as an undrafted rookie in 2017, and has also spent time with the Bills and Lions. He has one career NFL catch. He had 42 catches for 415 yards for the Stallions this season.
He joins a crowded wide receivers room that has multiple receivers at his size: Rondale Moore, Greg Dortch and Andy Isabella among them. But Bolden Jr. also can return kicks, with 618 kickoff return yards and 176 punt return yards this season. He was named all-USFL both on offense and on special teams.
