FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- 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 centre, 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' post-season contests. Hochstein was a fifth-round draft pick by Tampa Bay out of Nebraska in 2001.
