The Arizona Cardinals and guard Paul Fanaika have agreed to terms on a one-year contract extension, the team announced Thursday.

Fanaika was originally signed by the team April 24 as a free agent. His work in training camp impressed the coaching staff, and he was thrust into a starting role when left guard Jonathan Cooper broke his leg in the third preseason game.

The 6-foot-5, 327 pound Fanaika played collegiately at Arizona State University. He was selected by the Philadelphia Eagles in the seventh round of the 2009 NFL Draft, and has also spent time with the Washington Redskins and Seattle Seahawks.

In accordance with club policy, terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
