Arizona Cardinals sign former NAU standout Zach Bauman to practice squad

The Arizona Cardinals announced some changes to the practice squad on Monday, re-signing running back Zach Bauman and releasing cornerback Anthony Gaitor.

Bauman originally signed with the team during the offseason as an undrafted free agent out of Northern Arizona. He rushed for 49 yards during the preseason and had one catch for three yards, scoring a touchdown on a broken play against the Minnesota Vikings.

The running back made a permanent mark with the NAU Lumberjacks, setting team career records with 5,132 rushing yards and 6,316 all-purpose yards. In 2013 Bauman became one of only nine players in FCS history to rush for more than 1,000 yards in four different seasons.

The Cardinals made room for Bauman by releasing fourth-year veteran Gaitor.

Gaitor did not appear in a game with the Cardinals, but started 12 games with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2011 and 2012, recording 11 tackles and five passes defended.
