The Cardinals will have Frostee Rucker back for another season.
The veteran defensive end became a free agent last week, but has signed a new deal with the team. Rucker shared a picture of the contract signing on Friday afternoon.
It will be Rucker’s fifth season with the Cardinals and moved back into a reserve role last year after starting 13 times during the 2015 season. Rucker played 13 games again, but only started once and ended the year with 13 tackles and a forced fumble.
Calais Campbell’s departure means the Cardinals will have a different look on the defensive line next season. Rucker’s experience in the team’s scheme should help his chances of remaining in a backup role as younger players like Robert Nkemdiche, Rodney Gunter and any rookie additions step into bigger positions on the defense.
