Momah's addition to the 53-man roster is the corresponding move following Troy Niklas' (wrist) placement on the Cardinals' Reserve/Injured list. After spending last season himself on IR, Momah is still searching for his first NFL catch. With Darren Fells and Jermaine Gresham atop the TE depth chart, Momah won't be afforded a bounty of opportunity.
Momah (torn meniscus) didn't miss a single practice during Arizona's offseason program, ArizonaSports.com reports.
Momah suffered the knee injury on the final day of the 2015 preseason, but he now appears healthy and should be full-go for the start of training camp. A converted wideout, Momah is a 6-7, 255-pound specimen with soft hands. However, he's yet to log a snap in the NFL, and could be hard-pressed to realize his potential buried under Darren Fells, Jermaine Gresham, and Troy Niklas on the tight end depth chart, not to mention a slew of talented wide receivers he'd have to compete with for targets should he earn playing time.
Ifeanyi Momah (knee) will be returning to the Arizona 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.
