Cardinals TE Jake Ballard has retired from the NFL after three seasons.
Ballard started 13 games for the Giants in 2011, catching 38 passes for 604 yards and four touchdowns, but tore his ACL in New York's Super Bowl victory over the Patriots. He admits his "body hasn't felt the same since." Ballard caught two touchdowns across eight games for Arizona last season, but mostly shined as a blocker. John Carlson and Troy Niklas will handle tight end duties in the desert. We're hoping athletic contract-year TE Rob Housler gets traded. Aug 6 - 2:49 PM
