Cardinals Place Three On PUP List Including TE Jermaine Gresham & DE Markus Golden

The Arizona Cardinals announced Monday that place TE Jermaine Gresham (Achilles), DE Markus Golden (knee) and rookie CB Chris Campbell (ankle) on active/PUP list

  • The Cardinals also signed TE Chris Bazile to a contract and waived TE Beau Sandland.

Gresham, 30, is a former first-round pick of the Bengals back in 2010. He spent five years in Cincinnati before he signed a one-year contract with the Cardinals back in 2015.

A knee injury actually prevented him from signing a larger contract with the Raiders and forced him to re-sign with Arizona.

Gresham is currently in the second year of his four-year, $28 million contract that includes $13 million guaranteed and stands to make base salaries of $5.25 million and $6.25 million over the next two years.

In 2017, Gresham caught 33 passes for 322 yards receiving and two touchdowns for the Cardinals. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 45 tight end out of 71 qualifying players.

Golden, 27, is a former second-round pick of the Cardinals back in 2015. He’s currently in the third year of his four-year contract and stands to make base salaries of $791,212 and $969,318 over the final two years of the agreement.

In 2017, Golden appeared in four games and recorded 11  tackles and no sacks for the Cardinals before he was placed on injured reserve with a torn ACL or MCL.

Sandland, 25, is a former seventh-round pick of the Panthers back in 2016. He was waived at the start of the season and later signed to the team’s practice squad.

The Packers signed Sandland to a futures contract for the 2017 season but wound up waiving him with an injury designation during the preseason and later cutting him loose with an injury settlement.

Sandland signed on with the Cardinals back in April and later waived him with a non-football injury designation.

During his senior season at Montana State, Sandland caught 37 passes for 632 yards (17.1 YPR) and nine touchdowns.
