Cardinals wide receiver Jaxon Shipley, shown here in a preseason game against the Chiefs, was one of 11 practice squad players re-signed on Tuesday.

Wide receiver Jaxon Shipley, running back Marion Grice and nine other former Cardinals practice squad players were re-signed to future contracts on Tuesday.

Shipley was on the practice squad the entire season after signing with the team as an undrafted rookie free agent last year. Grice, an Arizona State product, saw time on the Cardinals’ active roster in 2014 and was added to the practice squad on Dec. 23.

The other players re-signed were safety Durell Eskridge, cornerback Carrington Byndom, tackle Rob Crisp, running back Robert Hughes, guard Antoine McClain, linebacker Quayshawn Nealy, defensive tackle Olsen Pierre, tackle John Wetzel and cornerback Kevin White.

Hughes played for the Cardinals in 2013 and 2014. He was a final cut in training camp last season and later added to the practice squad.

A future contract kicks in at the start of the league year in March. The Cardinals can have up to 90 players on their roster in the offseason.
