TEMPE, Ariz. – The Cardinals made some roster moves on Thursday, re-signing tackle Bradley Sowell to a one-year contract. They also signed cornerback Damond Smith.
Sowell saw action in all 16 of Arizona’s games last season, mainly on special teams and as a backup offensive lineman. In 2013, Sowell played in all 16 games, including starting the final 12 games of the season at left tackle after being claimed off waivers from the Indianapolis Colts on September 1, 2013. Sowell came into the NFL with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as an undrafted rookie free agent out of the University of Mississippi in 2012. Sowell spent his rookie season with the Colts, and played in 10 games.
Smith was with the Kansas City Chiefs’ last preseason before being released in Kansas City’s final roster cut on September 5, 2014. Smith spent the 2013 season on the B.C. Lions’ practice squad in the Canadian Football League. Smith played his final two collegiate seasons at South Alabama. He played his first two collegiate seasons at Western Michigan and had 35 tackles in 18 games [six starts].
