Cardinals sign six players to future contracts

The Cardinals on Friday announced the signing of six players to future contracts for the 2013 season.

Five of those players — linebacker Tim Fugger, defensive tackle Ricky Lumpkin, linebacker Colin Parker, defensive end Everrette Thompson, and running back Fozzy Whittaker — finished the season on the Cardinals’ practice squad. The only new addition to the roster was guard Jeremiah Warren.

Warren spent the majority of the season on the Patriots’ practice squad after signing with New England as an undrafted rookie free agent out of South Florida last year. He was released by the Patriots on Dec. 24.
