Arizona Cardinals sign tight end Ross Travis to one-year contract

NFL: Indianapolis Colts at Tampa Bay Buccaneers Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

With the Arizona Cardinals still having one roster spot open and remaining the speculation was heavy about a certain #11 coming back.

Instead, the Arizona Cardinals decided to sign a journeyman tight end in Ross Travis.

From the team:

Travis (6-6, 248) has played in 25 games (seven starts) in his NFL career and has 14 receptions for 142 yards. He originally entered the league in 2015 with Kansas City as an undrafted rookie free agent after playing college basketball at Penn State. After spending his rookie season on Kansas City’s practice squad, Travis appeared in 17 games with the Chiefs the following two seasons (2016-17). The 28-year old Travis played seven games with the Colts before being claimed off waivers by the Jets in 2019. Last year, Travis played in one game with the Jets while also spending time on their practice squad.

The Cardinals are woefully thin at tight end, so it makes sense to just continue to throw things at the wall to see what sticks.

Welcome to the desert, Ross.
