Hick's former team in Philadelphia could always use an upgrade at the position and he's been one of the top tackling linebackers over the past three seasons.

A seven-year veteran, Hicks agreed to a $3 million pay cut back in March, a move that prevented Arizona from releasing or waiving the projected starter.
