Cardinals re-signed S Hamza Abdullah.

Abdullah, 27 in August, made nine tackles in his only appearance last year, but is primarily a special teamer. He'll battle for a roster spot in camp.

Browns declared SS Hamza Abdullah, QB Ken Dorsey, LB Kris Griffin, TE Martin Rucker, OG Scott Young, DL Shaun Smith, WR Steve Sanders, and CB Travis Daniels inactive for Week 12.

Shaun Smith will be replaced by Santonio Thomas. Other than that, not too many surprises here. The Browns are hosting the Texans.

Browns agreed to terms with S Hamza Abdullah, formerly of the Broncos.

The Broncos-Browns pipeline is never ending. SS Sean Jones (knee) isn't expected back this week, so Abdullah adds depth behind Mike Adams.

Broncos waived S Hamza Abdullah.

The end came quickly for Abdullah. He started seven games last season and entered training camp as the starter before Marquand Manuel took over. The team signed former Redskin Vernon Fox to take Abdullah's place.

The Broncos are treating SS Hamza Abdullah as an every-down starter during training camp.

He's been taken off special teams duty and is the frontrunner to start opposite free safety John Lynch. Abdullah can be an IDP sleeper if he keeps the gig.

Broncos signed restricted free agent SS Hamza Abdullah to a one-year, $927,000 contract.

Denver successfully lowballed Abdullah, a 2005 seventh-round pick, after he played well in a starting role down the stretch last year. He will battle Marlon McCree and Marquand Manuel to start opposite free safety John Lynch.

The Broncos tendered the lowest possible offers to S Hamza Abdullah, CB Dominique Foxworth, and CB Karl Paymah.

Teams may be tempted to make a move for former 7th rounder Abdullah. Foxworth and Paymah would bring 3rd rounders, but Foxworth may be involved in trade talks for Shaun Rogers. The Broncos are expected to consider safeties Gibril Wilson, Madieu Williams, and Marquand Manuel in free agency.

The Broncos believe Hamza Abdullah can develop into a long-term starter at strong safety.

Abdullah was a productive tackler after taking over for Nick Ferguson as a starter down the stretch in 2007, but didn't produce many big plays. Denver could also look to bolster the position with the No. 12 overall pick in April.

Hamza Abdullah has replaced veteran Nick Ferguson as the Broncos' strong safety.

Speed and energy are apparently the primary reasons why the change was made, with the younger Abdullah having fresher legs than the 33-year-old Ferguson.

Broncos S Hamza Abdullah will be out roughly a month with a hip injury.

Abdullah's injury was originally diagnosed as a strained hip flexor, but was revealed to be a tear. Curome Cox will serve as John Lynch's primary backup in the interim, and Domonique Foxworth could see more action at safety.
