Glendale, AZ (SportsNetwork.com) - The Arizona Cardinals have re-signed kicker Jay Feely, tight end Jake Ballard and defensive end Frostee Rucker.

The team announced the deals Tuesday as the NFL's free agency window opened.

But linebacker Karlos Dansby, who played last season for the Cardinals, was reportedly signed by the Cleveland Browns.

Feely had already confirmed reports of his one-year deal Monday on Twitter.

"Happy to announce I am signed back with the @AZCardinals," Feely tweeted. "I never wanted to play with different teammates or for another organization."

The 37-year-old will be entering his 14th NFL season and fifth in Arizona. He had 127 points this past season, the third-highest total of his career, going 30-of-36 on field goal attempts and making all 37 of his point-after tries.

Among active kickers, Feely ranks fifth overall with 329 field goals made in 398 attempts, an 82.7 percent success rate.

Ballard, 26, had seven catches for 75 yards and two touchdowns in eight games last season and was signed to a one-year deal. Rucker, who appeared in all 16 games with 11 tackles last season, signed a two-year deal.
