GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) Pending his passing a physical, center Lyle Sendlein is coming back to the Arizona Cardinals.
Coach Bruce Arians confirmed the move Friday.
Sendlein was with Arizona all eight of his NFL seasons, the last seven as a starter, before becoming a free agent following last season. He reportedly turned down a one-year, $1.5 million offer from the Cardinals earlier in the year. But he failed to sign with another team and agreed to a one-year contract to come back to Arizona.
Arians said Sendlein would not come in automatically as a starter but would compete for the job with A.Q. Shipley and Ted Larsen. The coach said Shipley is ahead of Larsen so far in camp.
