The Arizona Cardinals have agreed to a deal with former Los Angeles Chargers defensive tackle Darius Philon, reports NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero and Ian Rapoport.
Philon’s contract is for two years and $10 million with half of that guaranteed. It can bump to $12 million with incentives, according to NFL Network.
The 25-year-old started in 13 games for Los Angeles in 2018 and recorded 33 tackles with 4.0 sacks and a forced fumble.
At 6-foot-1 and 300 pounds, Philon should provide immediate impact as Arizona has yet to fill in the depth chart at tackle. Veteran Corey Peters returns to play for the first year in defensive coordinator Vance Joseph’s 3-4 defense, but beyond that there are questions.
