The Arizona Cardinals look to be satisfied with their offensive line, as they are bringing back veteran A.Q. Shipley.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but it is a two year deal and from the Arizona Cardinals website, it seems like the Cardinals plan on having Shipley starting:

It proved to be genuine, as the team's starting center re-agreed to terms Thursday on a two-year deal. Shipley became a full-time starter for the first time in 2016 at age 30, and, as injuries popped up all around him, was the most consistent piece on the line.

He will aim to lock down that spot once again in 2017

The Cardinals will now have four starters potentially returning in 2017, albeit with two of those starters flipping positions in D.J. Humphries and Jared Veldheer.

The Cardinals need a little luck and a lot of health in 2017, but bringing back a cohesive unit on the offensive line should bring some excitement for 2017.
