Ford, 25, was the No. 38 overall pick in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft. In three seasons with the Bills, Ford appeared in 38 games and made 29 starts. He was the team’s primary starter at right tackle as a rookie before starting seven games at both guard spots in 2020.
Last year, Ford appeared in 15 games and started seven for Buffalo. Justin Pugh and Will Hernandez are the projected starting guards for the Cardinals.
So Ford will likely provide depth behind them while also being ready to contribute at tackle if needed. The former Oklahoma standout will be reunited with former teammates Kyler Murray and Marquise Brown in the desert.
