Cardinals add veteran DL Kelly

Tempe, AZ (SportsNetwork.com) - The Arizona Cardinals signed defensive lineman Tommy Kelly on Wednesday, just two days after the 10-year pro was released by the New England Patriots.

Kelly has made 122 NFL starts with the Patriots and Oakland Raiders, having compiled 441 tackles, 36 1/2 sacks, nine forced fumbles and one interception. The 33-year-old started the first five games of last season for New England before landing on injured reserve with a torn ACL.

The Cardinals were in need of experienced depth on their defensive line after losing three-time Pro Bowl tackle Darnell Dockett for the season due to an ACL tear he suffered in practice last week.

Defensive lineman Ryan McBean was released to make room for Kelly on the active roster.
