TEMPE – The Arizona Cardinals helped fill a big hole on the offensive line Monday by signing free agent Mike Gandy to a three-year contract.
Terms were not disclosed.
Gandy started all 16 games for the Buffalo Bills last season, nine at left guard and seven at left tackle. The seven-year pro started 16 games at left tackle for the Bills in 2005.
The Cardinals, under new coach Ken Whisenhunt, are in need of a left tackle after allowing Leonard Davis to leave as a free agent.
Arizona would love to draft Wisconsin tackle Joe Thomas, but he is expected to be gone by the time the Cardinals make their pick at No. 5 overall.
With Gandy at tackle in 2005, Buffalo’s Willis McGahee ran for a career-high 1,247 yards.
