The Arizona Cardinals have re-signed veteran kicker Matt Prater to a two-year contract.

At 38 years old, Prater is entering his 18th season in the NFL and his 3rd with the Cardinals.

Last year, Prater missed a handful of games due to a hip injury, however, he was still lights out when available. The veteran ended the season 22/25 on field goals and 17/18 on extra points.

Prater also holds the Cardinals’ franchise record for longest field goal at 62 yards. This boom of a kick came in Week 2 of the 2021 season to wrap up the first half of a matchup against the Vikings.

Along with re-signing Matt Prater, the Cardinals have also brought back RB Corey Clement for a second straight year.

Clement did not see any rushing attempts until Week 17 of last season, but he did finish the season strong with 48 total yards and a touchdown in a Week 18 matchup against the 49ers.

The 28-year-old running back will likely play a similar role this year as he competes for a backup spot with Darrel Williams and Keaontay Ingram.
