Arizona Cardinals make Kelvin Beachum signing official

NFL: New York Jets at Buffalo Bills Timothy T. Ludwig-USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona Cardinals have officially agreed to a one-year contract extension with 31-year old free agent offensive lineman Kelvin Beachum.

From the team:

The Arizona Cardinals Football Club today announced that the team has signed offensive lineman Kelvin Beachum to a one-year contract. In accordance with club policy, terms were not disclosed.

Beachum (6-3, 308) is an eight-year NFL veteran who has played in 104 career games (99 starts) with the Jets (2017-19), Jaguars (2016) and Steelers (2012-15) after being drafted by Pittsburgh in the seventh round (248th overall) of the 2012 NFL Draft out of SMU. He played the past three seasons with the Jets and started at left tackle in all 45 games he appeared in with New York.

The 31-year old Beachum began his career with Pittsburgh and played four seasons with the Steelers, appearing in 44 games (39 starts) at both left and right tackle before spending the 2016 season with Jacksonville where he started 15 games at left tackle.

Where Beachum fits in will be interesting, but he has some familiarity with the Cardinals staff that should make him a good depth signing at the worst.
