There was plenty of uncertainity this offseason about the status of center Rodney Hudson. That uncertainty has changed into good news.
According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Hudson has informed the team he will return to the team to play the 2022 season and will report to training camp next week on Tuesday, when veterans are to report for camp.
Hudson did not report for any offseason activities. He was not in the building for voluntary OTAs and also was absent from mandatory minicamp. His absence from minicamp was unexcused, according to Kliff Kingsbury.
The 33-year-old three-time Pro Bowl was rumored to be considering retirement or simply not wanting to play for the Cardinals for a second year. However, all is well now.
He returns to anchor the starting center position, solidifying the offensive line.
The Cardinals acquired Hudson last year for a third-round draft pick and then gave him a three-year. $30 million extension. He is due to make $10.85 million in salary this coming season, $5 million of which is fully guaranteed.
