TEMPE, Ariz. (March 24, 2005) -- The Arizona Cardinals retained the rights to defensive tackle Ross Kolodziej when the restricted free agent signed a one-year tender offer.
Kolodziej started four games last season and appeared in nine others, setting career highs with nine tackles and one sack.
A former seventh-round draft pick of the New York Giants in 2001, Kolodziej was released by the Giants in 2002. He signed with San Francisco, was waived again and ended up with the Giants, but never got into a game that season.
He was out of football in 2003 and signed with Arizona in April 2004.
