Zach Kerr signs with Carolina Panthers per report

NFL: Los Angeles Rams at Arizona Cardinals Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The depth along the defensive line for the Arizona Cardinals may have to come from another place this season.

According to Field Yates of ESPN, the Carolina Panthers are signing veteran defensive tackle Zach Kerr to a contract.

The 29-year old Kerr played in 12 games with the Arizona Cardinals after being signed as a street free agent during the season.

In his time with the Cardinals Kerr played 328 snaps (29% of available snaps) in his 12 games. He was by no means a starter, but he offered a needed backup to what is still a thin Cardinals defensive line.

Kerr finished the season with the Cardinals with 19 tackles including one tackle for loss.

Kerr joins Rodney Gunter in leaving what was a rocky Cardinals defensive front, but has since seen Jordan Phillips join the group and Jonathan Bullard return.

The Cardinals will hope to see a healthy Zach Allen in 2020 that could really change the complexion of the line rotation.

Good luck to Kerr in Carolina.
