Former Saints Long Snapper Justin Drescher Signs With Cardinals
A former member of the New Orleans Saints has found a new employer.
The Arizona Cardinals signed long snapper Justin Drescher on Monday.
The Cardinals were looking for a long snapper, after losing Aaron Brewer to a broken wrist in Sunday's loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Saints released Drescher, a 7-year veteran, with an injury settlement in August.
Drescher suffered an injury in the Saints' preseason win over the Houston Texans in late August.
A native of Colorado Springs, Colorado, Drescher signed with the Atlanta Falcons as an undrafted free agent in 2010, before being waived before the start of the season.
The 6-foot-1, 235-pound Drescher signed with the Saints in November of 2010, playing in 6 games, before being the long snapper for the Saints for every game since the start of the 2011 campaign.
The 29-year old Drescher, who played his college football at Colorado, played out his contract last season with the Saints.
