Cardinals Sign TE Ifeanyi Momah After Vet Combine

Team brings in second player from NFL workout to the roster


The Cardinals signed tight end Ifeanyi Momah, who worked out at the Veterans Combine, on Wednesday to a one-year contract.

Make that two players the Cardinals have signed from the NFL Veterans Combine.

The team signed tight end Ifeanyi Momah to a one-year contract Wednesday after Momah worked out at the Cardinals' facility Sunday during the NFL's first vet group workout. Earlier in the week, the Cardinals signed wide receiver , who had also worked out Sunday.

Momah, a undrafted rookie in 2013, has spent time with the Eagles, Lions and Browns. He has yet to

appear in a regular-season game. Standing 6-foot-7 and 248 pounds, Momah has played both tight end and wide receiver.

Before the signing was announced, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said he was hoping to add a young tight end who could play special teams, but emphasized he was happy with the current trio of tight ends the Cards figure to carry on the roster: the team's 2014 second-round draft pick Troy Niklas, Darren Fells and John Carlson.

"Troy is going to be a good player if we can keep him healthy," Arians said. "Darren, I think, made the step to the NFL. Now can he make the step to a consistent everyday player? His play in December and January was really good.

"I think John lost his swagger a little bit after a couple dropped passes. He never drops passes, but it gets in your head. We talked about it in his exit interview. I think he come back better than ever. Can we find another young guy to fill that multiple role?"

The Cardinals also have Ted Bolser at tight end on the roster.
