Momah (knee) will be returning to the Cardinals in 2016, as the exclusive rights free agent was tendered a contract Thursday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports. Momah showed promise throughout his first preseason with the Cardinals, but a torn meniscus suffered on the eve of the regular season resulted in a stay on injured reserve. Following Thursday's move, head coach Bruce Arians will thus get another look at the tight end, who will join Darren Fells, Troy Niklas, and Gerald Christian, at least, in the offseason program.
Cardinals tight end Ifeanyi Momah , who earned one of the final spots on the team, tore his meniscus Wednesday and will be placed on season-ending injured reserve, per Fox Sports. Momah injured his knee during Tuesday's practice. He has been with the Eagles, Brows and Lions since coming out of Boston College, although he has not appeared in a game.
The Cardinals announced they've signed tight end Ifeanyi Momah, who was waived by the Lions last month. Momah, 26, spent time on the Browns and Lions practice squads last season after signing with the Eagles in 2013 as a rookie free agent out of Boston College.
The Lions have waived wide receiver/tight end Ifeanyi Momah due to a failure to disclose a physical condition, ESPN reports. Momah was with the Eagles during the 2014 preseason and briefly spent time on the Browns' practice squad before joining the Lions' practice squad in mid-October. He didn't see any action during the regular season or playoffs.
The Lions have announced several roster moves on Monday, ESPN reports. The team signed tight end Kellen Davis, and in order to free up a roster spot, Detroit has waived safety Jerome Couplin. Wide receiver Ifeanyi Momah was also signed to the practice squad.
