Jermaine Gresham, TE: 1 year, unknown amount
Re-Sign Josh Mauro, NT: 1 year, $600,000
Mauro’s skill-set was better utilized in 2015 as a nose tackle. He has difficulty block-shedding but does a solid job tackling and hits hard.
He even picked up a sack in 4 starts last year. Mauro is a payer on the upswing at just 25 so this is a very solid signing by the Cardinals.
Re-Sign Ifeanyi Momah, TE: 1 year, minimum exclusive rights tender
There’s really not much to say here. Momah is 6’7 and over 250 lbs, so he could potentially grow into something.
He’s a former Eagles receiver that bulked up to play the position and looked good a couple years ago at the veteran combine.
Certainly worth rostering and there’s no risk. I like it.
Re-Sign Drew Stanton, QB: 2 years, $6.5 million
Stanton was a decent option running Arians’ offense when he needed to in the 2014 season.
He’s not, by any means, anything special but he’s just about at the right price at 3.25 mil per year here.
This is a solid re-signing and allows the Cardinals to allocate their resources elsewhere.
Tyvon Branch, S: 2 years, $10 million, $5 million
I loved Tyvon Branch’s level of play for the Chiefs when he was on the field last season.
He’s a fringe starter that was stuck behind some really solid safeties in Kansas City. He should add some juice to the Cardinals safety corps.
The Cardinals defense loves its play-makers.
