Cardinals sign 11-year veteran guard Hochstein
The Arizona Cardinals have signed 11-year NFL veteran guard Russ Hochstein.
The 6-foot-4, 305-pound lineman played the last three seasons with the Denver Broncos. Before that, he played nearly seven seasons for the New England Patriots and one-plus season with Tampa Bay.
During his long career, he has made starts at center, guard, tight end and fullback. He has two Super Bowl rings he won as a member of the Patriots in 2003 and 2004.
Last season with Denver, Hochstein appeared in 15 regular season games and started at right guard in both of the Broncos' postseason contests. Hochstein was a fifth-round draft pick by Tampa Bay out of Nebraska in 2001.
