Cardinals Re-Sign OL

The Arizona Cardinals are bringing back one of their offensive linemen on a one-year deal.

ARIZONA -- The Arizona Cardinals are re-signing OL Keith Ismael to a one-year deal, according to NFL Media's Tom Pelissero. 

Ismael becomes just the latest Cardinals player to re-join the team, as others in the reported likes of Krys Barnes, Blake Gillikin, Carter O'Donnell, Jesse Luketa, L.J. Collier, Trystan Colon and Greg Dortch have done the same in the early stages of free agency.

New reported signings for Arizona are DeeJay Dallas, Mack Wilson, Bilal Nichols, Justin Jones and Sean Murphy-Bunting. 

Leki Fotu has been the team's lone reported departure after he is set to join the New York Jets on a one-year deal.

Ismael, 25, was a fifth-round pick the 2020 NFL Draft by Washington before joining the San Francisco 49ers in 2022. 

Arizona claimed him off waivers in August of last year. 

Ismael played in 13 games for the Cardinals last season with no starts. He's started five games in his career, all with Washington in 2021. 

Arizona hopes to improve their 4-13 record from last season after having plenty of cap space and draft picks as 2024 approaches. The Cardinals had over $50 million in cap space and six picks in the first three rounds of the 2024 NFL Draft.
