RATTLERS ADD DEFENSIVE LINEMAN
Dwayne Hendricks joins Arizona
Mesa, AZ – The Arena Football League has assigned defensive lineman Dwayne Hendricks to the Arizona Rattlers.
Hendricks (6-3, 297, Miami) spent three seasons on the New York Giants practice squad, making an appearance in a single game during the team’s 2011 Super Bowl Championship run.
While at Miami, Hendricks played in 33 games from 2005-08 recording 57 tackles, 2.5 sacks, one pass breakup and one quarterback hit.
The assignment comes one day after the Rattlers made a trade in which they acquired the sixth position in the AFL’s claim order from the Iowa Barnstormers in exchange for offensive lineman Anthony Parker.
Parker (6-5, 330, Western Michigan) played in five games for Arizona this season. He spent time with the Milwaukee Mustangs in 2012, recording one catch for a 13-yard touchdown in two games.
