The Arizona Cardinals are keeping their veteran punter. In a move that was reported a week ago, the team officially re-signed punter Andy Lee.

From the team:

The Arizona Cardinals Football Club today announced that the team has re-signed punter Andy Lee to a one-year contract. In accordance with club policy, terms were not disclosed.

Lee (6-1, 185) is a three-time Pro Bowl selection (2007, ’09, ’11) and three-time first-team All-Pro (2007, ’11-12) who has played 17 years in the NFL with San Francisco (2004-14), Cleveland (2015), Carolina (2016) and Arizona (2017-20). He ranks third in the NFL with a 47.3 punting average since coming to Arizona in 2017. Lee established a single-season franchise record with a 47.3-yard punting average in 2017 which he broke the following season in 2018 with a league-leading 48.6-yard average. His 47.8-yard average in 2019 was second in the league that season.

The 38-year old Lee has appeared in 264 career games (63 with the Cardinals) with 1,348 punts for 62,747 yards (46.5 yard avg.) and has a 39.8 yard net average and 446 punts landed inside the 20-yard line. His 46.5-yard punting average is the sixth-best in NFL history and his 446 punts inside the 20-yard line rank fourth. Lee entered the NFL with San Francisco in 2004 as a sixth-round selection (188th overall) in the NFL Draft out of Pittsburgh and has finished in the top 10 in the NFL in gross average in 13 of his 17 career seasons.

Welcome back to Andy Lee.
