Gresham, who is recovering from surgery to repair a herniated disc in his back, has also drawn interest from New Orleans and Oakland.

The Cardinals are in need of a tight end following John Carlson’s sudden retirement and their decision to let Rob Housler leave via free agency. Troy Niklas, who missed most of his rookie season due to a variety of injuries, and former basketball player Darren Fells are currently at the top of the depth chart.

Gresham had 62 receptions for 460 yards and five touchdowns for Cincinnati last season. In 74 career games over five seasons, he has 280 catches for 2,722 yards and 24 touchdowns.
