PHOENIX (CBS5) -

The Arizona Cardinals Football Club today announced that the team has re-signed exclusive rights free agent nose tackle ALAMEDA TA'AMU (al-uh-MEE-duh Tah-AH-moo) to a one-year contract.

Ta'amu (6-3, 348) played in 14 games (three starts) last season with the Cardinals after the team claimed him off waivers from the Pittsburgh Steelers on September 1. He had 13 tackles, including three for loss, and added two QB pressures in his first season in Arizona. He spent his rookie season with the Steelers in 2012 after being selected in the fourth round (109th overall) of the NFL Draft out of Washington. He was inactive for seven games as a rookie and also spent six weeks on the team's practice squad.
