Cardinals Worked Out Five Players


According to Aaron Wilson, Cardinals worked out defensive linemen on Tuesday including DT Mike Pennel and DL Zach Kerr.

The full list of tryouts includes:

  1. DL Joel Heath
  2. DL Zach Kerr
  3. DT Mike Pennel
  4. DT Caraun Reid
  5. DT Anthony Zettel

Pennel, 28, wound up signing on with the Packers as an undrafted free agent out of Colorado State-Pueblo back in 2014. He was waived towards the end of 2016 and was later claimed off of waivers by the Jets.

The Jets re-signed Pennel to a three-year contract worth up to $12 million in 2018 but New York declined his team-option after one season. He signed on with the Patriots back in March but was cut loose in late August.

The Colts brought Pennel in for a workout a few weeks ago but was not signed to a contract.

In 2018, Pennel appeared in all 16 games for the Jets and recorded 27 tackles, no sacks an a pass defense.

Kerr, 28, wound up signing on with the Colts as an undrafted free agent out of Delaware back in 2014. He managed to make the 53-man roster in all three of seasons with the Colts.

However, Indianapolis declined to tender him a restricted offer, which allowed him to test the open market as an unrestricted free agent in 2017. The Broncos later signed him to a two-year contract but was cut loose in the last week of August.

Since becoming a free agent, the Lions brought Kerr in for a workout but he left Detroit without a contract.

In 2018, Kerr appeared in all 16 games for the Broncos and recorded 33 tackles, 1.5 sacks and a pass defense. Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 73 interior defensive lineman out of 112 qualifying players last season.
