As he heads into his fourth season, Alameda Ta’amu, will try to make the starting roster out of training camp.
Ta’amu was drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the fourth round of the 2012 draft, but was released to the practice squad in November of 2012. He was later promoted to the active roster, but was released the following pre-season and was claimed by the Cardinals on September 1st of 2013.
Ta’amu, a nose tackle out of Washington, was active for seven games last season but never preformed at his best. This is just a season after he played 14 games, starting in seven, and had seven combined tackles. He will try to look impressive enough to make the roster, but if he is unable to do so he a candidate for the practice squad.
