It's reportedly a two-year deal worth $31 million with $23 million guaranteed.
The team announced the deal with the free-agent edge rusher on Monday.
Watt was released last month by the Houston Texans, for whom he won three NFL Defensive Player of the Year awards.
The 31-year old Watt has been one of the NFL’s best players for a decade, but asked out in Houston, which is undergoing a roster upheaval.
Watt joins another former Texans star, wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, in Arizona.
Hopkins was acquired by the Cardinals in a one-sided trade a year ago.
