The Arizona Cardinals aren't done improving their receiving corps. On Wednesday, they brought in former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Malik Turner for a visit.

"The Cardinals hosted free agent WR Malik Turner on a visit today," ESPN's Field Yates reported. "He spent parts of the last two seasons with the Cowboys."

Turner, 26, was an undrafted rookie out of Illinois in 2018. He spent time on the Seattle Seahawks and Green Bay Packers before joining "America's Team."

In 14 games this past season, Turner hauled in 12 passes for 149 yards and three touchdowns. Overall, he has 29 career receptions and 414 receiving yards.

At the moment, the Cardinals have two impact players at wide receiver on their depth chart in DeAndre Hopkins and Rondale Moore.

Considering the Cardinals already lost Christian Kirk in free agency, adding Turner on a one-year deal wouldn't be a bad idea.

Perhaps a change of scenery will allow Turner to rediscover the magic that made him an impact player at Illinois.
