The Cardinals on Monday re-signed linebacker Gabe Martin and receiver Jeremy Ross.
The Ross move was reported last week, and by bringing both back the Cardinals kept a pair of valuable special teams contributors.
Martin appeared in eight games for the Cardinals last season, recording four tackles, two special teams tackles and a fumble recovery. His season was cut short by a knee injury that led to him being placed on injured reserve on Nov. 18.
Martin originally joined the Cardinals as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2015. He spent the entire regular season on the practice squad before being elevated to the active roster for both playoff games.
Ross appeared in two games for the Cardinals in 2016 after signing with the team on Dec. 14. He caught four passes for 37 yards and one touchdown in the season finale against the Los Angeles Rams, and in his career the former undrafted rookie out of California has 43 receptions for 506 yards and three touchdowns.
