The Arizona Cardinals addressed the tight end position on Tuesday.

Okay, they added a tight end to the roster on Tuesday via the NFL’s International Player Pathway Program.

From the team:

The Arizona Cardinals Football Club along with the three other teams from the NFC West have been selected to participate in the NFL’s International Player Pathway Program this season. They will join teams from AFC East and NFC East who will participate in the program again this season with the players they were allocated last year.

Bernhard Seikovits (BURN-hard / SIKE-oh-vitts), a 23-year old tight end from Austria, has been allocated to the Cardinals as part of the program.

Seikovits (6-5, 262) is a Vienna native who is currently a captain for the men’s national team. He previously won two European Championships as a quarterback for the U19 national team. Seikovits played youth football for the Vienna Vikings until he was selected for the Austrian U19 national team as the age of 16.

Obviously we don’t know much, so let’s hope they get a player in Seikovits.
