Cardinals Re-Sign Two ERFAs, Add Two AAF Offensive Linemen

The Cardinals announced on Monday they’ve re-signed exclusive-rights free agents OL Jeremy Vujnovich and TE Darrell Daniels.

Arizona also signed two AAF offensive linemen, Jeremiah Poutasi from the Salt Lake Stallions and Andrew Lauderdale of the Arizona Hotshots. 

Poutasi, 24, is a former third-round pick of the Titans back in May of 2015. He was in the second year of his four-year, $3.385 million rookie contract when the Titans cut him loose coming out of the preseason.

The Jaguars signed him to their practice squad just a few days later and he was eventually promoted to the active roster. Jacksonville decided to waive him coming out of the preseason and he’s been on and off of their practice squad this year.

In 2016, Poutasi appeared in one game for the Jaguars.

Daniels, 24, wound up signing on with the Colts as an undrafted free agent out of Washington back in May of 2017. Indianapolis later traded Daniels to the Seahawks in return for Marcus Johnson coming out of the preseason.

Daniels was on and off of the Seahawks’ roster in 2018 before being claimed off waivers by the Cardinals toward the end of the year.

In 2018, Daniels was active for nine games for the Seahawks and two games for the Cardinals. He did not record a statistic. 

Vujnovich, 28, originally signed on with the Packers back in 2014. He was on and off of their practice squad for two seasons before eventually signing with the Colts following the 2016 draft.

Vujnovich bounced between the practice squad and the Colts’ active roster during his first season in Indianapolis before making the 53-man roster in 2017.

The Colts re-signed him to a one-year exclusive rights contract only to cut him loose coming out of the 2018 preseason. The Cardinals claimed Vujnovich off of waivers.

In 2018, Vujnovich appeared in five games for the Cardinals and started two.

Lauderdale signed on with the Saints as an undrafted free agent out of New Hampshire in 2017. He was waived after just a few weeks in New Orleans and caught on with the 49ers. 

Lauderdale was waived in final roster cuts, but signed back to the practice squad later in the year. He earned a futures deal with the 49ers for 2018, but was again released in final cuts. 

After a short stint on the Bills practice squad to close out 2018, Lauderdale signed with the Arizona Hotshots for the AAF’s first and only season. 

During his college career, Lauderdale appeared in 42 games and made 22 starts. He earned Third-Team All-CAA honors.
