The Arizona Cardinals are beefing up their defensive line.
According to Vaughn McClure, former Atlanta Falcons defensive tackle Terrell McClain.
Former Falcons defensive tackle Terrell McClain is signing a one-year deal with the Arizona Cardinals, source tells me. McClain played in 13 games for the Falcons last season and started five.

McClain (31) is an eight-year veteran of five NFL teams.
His best stop was while in Dallas as a member of the Cowboys, where he played for three seasons, finishing with 3.5 sacks, 60 tackles and six tackles for loss in 30 games played, which included 15 starts in 2016.
Last season, with the Atlanta Falcons, McClain played in 13 games, including five starts. He recorded one sack to go along with 17 tackles and one tackle for loss.
McClain played in 34% of the Falcons defensive snaps, as part of their defensive line rotation. He was also a part of 14% of special teams snaps.
He’ll be a welcome addition to a team who needs veteran bodies along the defensive line to fill that 25-35% snap role.
Welcome to the desert, Terrell and good luck.
