It sounds like career journeyman Zac Dysert may have finally found a football home with the Arizona Cardinals, as today the team inked him to a deal to remain in Arizona through the 2017 season.
While the deal is likely for little money, it may finally mean that Dysert will get a shot to play in the NFL for more than just a few weeks at a time.
He’s bounced around since being a 7th round pick back in 2013, Arizona is already the 6th team he’s been on. He’s been with the Denver Broncos, Chicago Bears, Houston Texans, Buffalo Bills and Miami Dolphins before coming to the Cardinals.
The 26-year-old was close to going back to Miami according to reports, as the story goes is they wanted to ink him off the Cards practice squad after the injury to Ryan Tannehill, but then Arizona promoted him last week to the active roster.
Dysert could have been the number two in Miami behind new QB Matt Moore, who is going to be the starter with Tannehill injured last week against of all teams the Cardinals.
Head coach Bruce Arians told Darren Urban of AZCardinals.com. that Dysert has a “really good chance to be a good player.”
