The Arizona Cardinals signed free-agent running back Sherman Badie, the team announced Friday.

Badie, who was undrafted out of Tulane, rushed for 350 yards and three touchdowns on 60 carries in 12 games for the Green Wave as a senior in 2017.

The 6-foot, 205-pounded set a career high with 688 rushing yards and three scores as a freshman. He also had 24 catches that year and followed that up with 27 receptions as a sophomore.

For his career, Badie averaged 5.1 yards per carry and scored nine rushing touchdowns in 44 games. He added 56 receptions and one score.

Badie also saw time on special teams, averaging 23.2 yards on kick returns over his final three seasons, including one for a touchdown as a junior.

To clear a roster spot for Badie, the Cardinals released fullback Austin Ramesh. Ramesh decided to retire after dealing with multiple concussions in college.
