Tony Bergstrom Added To Cardinals' O-Line

Veteran guard/center gives more depth to unit

The Cardinals brought in veteran offensive lineman Tony Bergstrom Wednesday.

The Cardinals added some depth to the offensive line Wednesday, agreeing to a one-year contract with veteran offensive lineman Tony Bergstrom.

Bergstrom played last season with the Texans, appearing in 15 games without a start. He played with the Raiders from 2012-2015. Houston released him last month with a year left on a free-agent contract he signed in 2016. Expected to compete for the starting center job, Bergstrom lost the battle with Greg Mancz and only played three offensive snaps all season. He can also play guard.

He joins a team that just drafted a pair of offensive linemen – guard Dorian Johnson and tackle Will Holden. With Evan Boehm currently slated as the first-string right guard, however, there is an opening to have another center around behind starter A.Q. Shipley.

Including Bergstrom and the undrafted rookie free agents the team agreed to terms with, the Cardinals now have 16 offensive linemen on the roster.
