Cardinals Re-Sign Former Tiger Andre Ellington
The Arizona Cardinals re-signed running back Andre Ellington to a one-year deal, the team announced Monday.
Terms were not disclosed.
Ellington, who turned 28 in February, has had an underachieving four years with the Cardinals, capped last season by a career-low 46 touches accounting for 181 total yards.
Known for his speed and quickness, Ellington was Arizona’s feature back as a rookie in 2013 and again in 2014. However, injuries prevented him from maximizing his potential as he suffered a hip pointer, hip flexor, turf toe, a torn foot tendon and a PCL injury during his time in Arizona.
Ellington may have been the most impacted by David Johnson‘s arrival to the Cardinals in 2015, as his touches dropped significantly the last two seasons from 247 in 2014 to 60 in 2015.
