TEMPE, Ariz. -- The Arizona Cardinals announced Tuesday that restricted free-agent tight end Ben Patrick has signed his one-year qualifying offer.
The team also re-signed safety Hamza Abdullah to a one-year contract and fullback Nehemiah Broughton to his exclusive rights contract.
A seventh-round draft pick out of Delaware in 2007, Patrick has 30 career receptions for 323 yards and four touchdowns. He also has five playoff receptions, including a touchdown catch in Super Bowl XLIII.
Abdullah is a six-year NFL veteran who signed with the Cardinals last Dec. 22 and played in one regular-season game and both playoff contests.
