Houston Texans Add Ex-Panthers Offensive Tackle Matt Kalil

The Houston Texans have signed veteran OT Matt Kalil to bolster the offensive line.

One week ago, the Carolina Panthers released offensive tackle Matt Kalil two years into his five-year contract worth $55 million which was signed prior to the 2017 season. Kalil has signed with the Houston Texans according to reports.

Kalil was drafted in the first round of the 2012 NFL draft out of USC. He was the 4th overall selection by the Minnesota Vikings and lined up at left tackle for the next five seasons.

He signed with the Panthers prior to the 2017 season to join his brother, Ryan. In his first season he started all 16 games for the Panthers but missed majority of the 2018 season undergoing knee surgery.

For his career, Kalil has appeared in 83 career games starting all of the games. In the past three seasons, Kalil has only appeared in 18 games.

Kalil joins an offensive tackle group with Julién Davenport and Seantreal Henderson.
