Tight end Gerald Christian is back with the Cardinals. This time, it’s the Arizona Cardinals.
Christian signed a one-year contract with Arizona on Thursday. In a corresponding move, Arizona released tight end Steven Wroblewski to make room on the roster according to NBC Sports.
The former Louisville tight end played for the ACC Cardinals from 2013-14 after transferring from Florida. He posted 60 receptions for 810 yards and 9 touchdowns in 25 games over two years at Louisville. As a senior, he recorded 32 catches for 384 yards and 5 scores.
In the 2015 draft, he actually went to the Cardinals with the last pick of the seventh round, giving Christian the title Mr. Irrelevant.
He entered last season in training camp with Arizona, but the team released him on Aug. 29. After that, Christian caught on with the Buffalo Bills, playing three games and catching one pass for 14 yards. Buffalo released him on March 6.
Behind veteran Jermaine Gresham, he will be competing with a plethora of other tight ends — Troy Niklas, Ifeanyi Momah, Hakeem Valles and Ricky Seals-Jones — for a roster spot.
