The Arizona Cardinals begin their “aggressive” approach in the upcoming Free Agent period. They took their first step towards building their 2017 squad on Friday by re-signing Jeremy Ross.
Ross was added to the Cardinals roster following the team departing with Michael Floyd. Ross played in only two games for the Cardinals catching four passes for 37 yards and a touchdown. Ross did not return a kick in those two games, nor did he return a punt.
If Ross is to make the Cardinals 2017 roster, he will have to show he can man the return position for the team. The Cardinals will have their four wide receivers, and barring injury, Ross will likely not see much time at receiver. If he can help solidify the special teams, the Cardinals weakest link for so many years, Ross will have a legitimate chance at staying with the team in 2017.
Ross signed a one-year deal with the team.
Free Agency opens up on March 7th, but players cannot officially sign with new teams, or be traded, until March 9th.
