04:39 AM ET 04.06 | The Arizona Cardinals are going to hold on to running back Alfonso Smith for another season. The team announced that they have signed Smith to an exclusive rights deal worth $555,000. Last season, Alfonso Smith played in 11 games for the Cardinals, serving as the backup to Ryan Williams, LaRod Stephens-Howling and Chris Wells for a short period of time. In 11 games for the Arizona Cardinals Smith did not get the chance to run the ball but was to catch the ball when the chance came. Alfonso Smith caught two passes for 21 yards last season. In 2013 Alfonso Smith is going to be competing against Ryan Williams to determine on who will be serving as the Arizona Cardinals backup running back to new-comer Rashard Mendenhall.

I thought this guy was gonna be a stud when he was drafted. Not so much.

You got to feel bad making .5 Mil when people around you are making 7-14 Million.

It's still a helluva lot better than pulling in 40 grand a year, or whatever the average American salary happens to be.

Never mind. Thought they were talking about AlPHonso the cornerback, not AlFonso the running back.

I've never heard of him.
