Arizona Cardinals add seven players to their practice squad

NFL: Washington Redskins at Jacksonville Jaguars Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona Cardinals filled out their 16-man practice squad roster, that is actually a 17-man roster with the exception for Bernhard Seikovits.

First, the seven names:

Linebacker Ron’Dell Carter

Wide receiver Josh Doctson

Cornerback Rasul Douglas

Cornerback Antonio Hamilton

Defensive lineman Jeremiah Ledbetter

Defensive lineman Jonathan Ledbetter

Offensive lineman Michal Menet

Obviously we know who Michal Menet is, but lets meet the other six players.

Carter (6-3, 270) spent the preseason with the Cowboys after playing three games with Dallas last year as a rookie. He entered the league in 2020 with Dallas as an undrafted rookie free agent from James Madison and began last year on the Cowboys practice squad before signing with the Colts where he was inactive for five games. The 24-year old Carter then re-joined the Cowboys and played in three games and had one tackle.

Doctson (6-3, 206) was a first-round pick (22nd overall) of Washington in the 2016 NFL Draft out of TCU and has played in 34 games (26 starts) in his career, collecting 81 receptions for 1,100 yards (13.6-yard avg.) and eight touchdowns. He spent three seasons (2016-18) with Washington before playing with Minnesota in 2019. The 28-year old Doctson opted out of the 2020 season after signing with the New York Jets.

Douglas (6-2, 209) is a four-year NFL veteran who has played in 60 games (29 starts) in his career and has 178 tackles (144 solo), five interceptions and 34 passes defensed with Carolina (2020) and Philadelphia (2017-19). He played 14 games (11 starts) last season with the Panthers and had a career-high 62 tackles. The 26-year old Douglas entered the league with Philadelphia as a third-round selection (99th overall) in the 2017 NFL Draft out of West Virginia. He also has played in six postseason games and was a part of the Eagles Super Bowl LII winning team in 2017. Douglas spent the preseason with the Raiders and Texans.

Hamilton (6-0, 195) is a five-year NFL veteran who has played in 57 career games (two starts), including appearing in all 16 regular season games last year with Kansas City and all three postseason contests with the Chiefs. He originally entered the league with the Raiders in 2016 as an undrafted rookie free agent from South Carolina State and has 31 tackles (26 solo) and five passes defensed on defense to go along with 19 tackles on special teams in his career. Hamilton played in 12 games with the Raiders in his first two seasons (2016-17) before appearing in 29 games with the Giants over the following two seasons (2018-19).

Jeremiah Ledbetter (6-3, 299) played in three games last season for the Super Bowl Champion Buccaneers and had three tackles and a sack while also spending time on Tampa Bay’s practice squad. He has played in 20 career games and has 18 tackles and 1.5 sacks after entering the league with Detroit as a sixth-round selection (205th overall) in the 2017 NFL Draft out of Arkansas. The 27-year old Ledbetter played all 16 games with the Lions in 2017 and has also spent time on the practice squad of the Ravens in his career.

Jonathan Ledbetter (6-4, 282) spent the preseason with the Dolphins after missing the 2020 season on the non-football injury list. He entered the league in 2019 with Miami as an undrafted rookie free agent out of Georgia and played in the season opener as a rookie and had four tackles before being placed on injured reserve. While at Georgia, the 23-year old Ledbetter played in 43 games (28 starts) and had 122 tackles, 4.5 sacks and two forced fumbles.

Welcome to the desert, one and all.
