Momah saw each of his last two seasons cut short due to injury, with a torn ACL in 2015 and a broken wrist in 2016 leading to two straight years on IR. His contract with Arizona runs through 2018 and he'll have a chance to earn a role as one of the team's top tight end options. He's expected to be a full go in time for spring practices after being shut down for the season back in November.
Momah suffered a broken wrist in Sunday's loss to the Panthers that ultimately will end his season after five games. In that time, he recorded two receptions for 50 yards as the
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.
