Momah recorded two catches for 50 yards in his five games with the Cardinals this season. The 27-year-old's season is likely over, and it is unclear what his next step will be if he indeed comes to terms on an injury settlement with the team.
Promoted to the active roster prior to Week 4, Momah has been a bit part on offense, with 21 total offensive snaps versus 65 on special teams in four games. However, he was able to find a soft spot in the Seahawks' defense twice Sunday, recording a pair of 20-plus yard catches. While he lagged far behind Jermaine Gresham in terms of snaps -- 82 versus nine -- Momah outgained Gresham by 35 yards and may be establishing a level of trust with quarterback Carson Palmer.
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.
