Cardinals hire Gandy to fill need at left tackle

The Associated Press

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.

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.
