DT Tommy Kelly Signs with Cardinals

Thu, 28 Aug 2014 11:12:00 +0000

Darrin Klimek/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- It didn't take long for defensive lineman Tommy Kelly to find a new team.

Three days after being cut by the New England Patriots, Kelly signed a one-year deal with the Arizona Cardinals.

The move comes on the heels of the Cardinals losing Pro Bowl defensive lineman Darnell Dockett for the season.
The 33-year-old Kelly played five games with the Patriots in 2013 before enduring a season-ending ACL injury. Before the injury, Kelly had 22 tackles and 2.5 sacks.

Throughout his 10 NFL seasons, Kelly has compiled 441 tackles, 37 sacks, and 10 forced fumbles.

To make room for Kelly on the 75-man roster, the Cardinals released defensive lineman Ryan McBean.
