Arizona signs long-snapper Leach

Posted: Updated:

TEMPE -- The Arizona Cardinals have signed long-snapper Mike Leach, who spent the past seven seasons with the Denver Broncos.

Contract terms for Leach weren't disclosed Thursday.

The signing completed a three-team shift of long snappers between Arizona, Denver and New England.

An undrafted free agent out of William & Mary, Leach played two seasons with Tennessee before signing as a free agent with Denver in 2002. He appeared in 104 consecutive regular-season games and four playoff games for the Broncos, who released him on March 1.

Leach replaces Nathan Hodel, who was released after seven seasons with Arizona and signed with New England.

Hodel replaced Lonie Paxton, who signed with Denver.
