Beau Sandland, a former Montana State University football player, is getting another shot at the NFL after signing a one-year deal with the Arizona Cardinals on Monday.

The 6-foot-5, 255-pound tight end was a seventh-round selection of the Carolina Panthers in the 2016 NFL Draft, and spent that season on the practice squads of Carolina and the Green Bay Packers. Last season, he was among Green Bay’s cuts during training camp.

Sandland played one season with the Bobcats after transferring from the University of Miami, and caught 37 passes for a team-high 632 yards and nine touchdowns as a senior. He was a First Team All-Big Sky Conference selection, and a Second Team FCS All-American.

Sandland will be reuniting with first-year Arizona head coach Steve Wilks, who was an assistant at Carolina when Sandland played for the Panthers.

Sandland will be one of five tight ends on the Cardinals’ roster when they begin their three-day voluntary minicamp on Tuesday.
