Draft Scout Sam Acho News
09/01/15 - LB Sam Acho did not make the trip to Cincinnati and did not practice Monday due to illness.
04/01/15 - LB Sam Acho left the Cardinals for the Bears Wednesday (April 1) as an unrestricted free agent.
Acho entered the league as a fourth-round pick by Arizona in the 2011 NFL Draft out of Texas. He appeared in 51 games (32 starts) over four seasons with the Cardinals, recording 86 tackles, 13 sacks, 16 tackles for a loss, seven forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries, three interceptions and eight pass breakups. In 2014, he had 31 tackles and one sack in 16 games.
Acho started his lone playoff appearance in 2014, tallying two tackles, one sack and one forced fumble.
03/08/15 - OLB Sam Acho, unrestricted FA update, is a productive player, but probably better suited to being a backup and special teams contributor. The Cardinals are interested in re-signing him, but don't want to pay too much.
10/27/14 - LB Sam Acho got to play against his younger brother, Emmanuel Acho, a linebacker for the Eagles. It's the first time they've ever played against each other. "It was huge," Sam said. "He's been playing in the NFL for three years. This is my fourth year and our paths have never crossed. To have this game -- we had so much family in town, about 10 family members -- and they were split down the middle." Sam Acho said his mother wore a jersey featuring both the Cardinals and the Eagles. His father wore a Cardinals jersey and an Eagles hat during the first half and then an Eagles jersey and a Cardinals hat during the second half.
09/24/13 - OLB Sam Acho (fractured left fibula) was placed on injured reserve. Acho is a starter, and while not an elite player, he was smart and made few mistakes. He also contributed on special teams. Rookie Alex Okafor is likely to replace him.
