Cardinals agree on four-year contract with Jermaine Gresham

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) In their first free-agent move, the Arizona Cardinals have agreed to terms on a four-year contract to retain Jermaine Gresham.

Terms were not revealed.

The Cardinals had made retaining the 6-foot-5, 260-pound tight end a priority. Coach Bruce Arians often praised the player's toughness and blocking ability, as well as his pass-catching skills.

Last year, Gresham said he took less money than he was offered elsewhere to sign a one-year deal with Arizona because he liked the organization so much.

Gresham caught 18 passes for 223 yards last season. Since he signed with the Cardinals as a free agent in 2015, Gresham has appeared in 31 games with 26 starts. He caught 37 passes for 391 yards and two scores two seasons ago.

Gresham was a two-time Pro Bowl selection for Cincinnati earlier in his career.
