Former Green Bay Packers and Houston Texans defensive tackle Kingsley Keke signed with the Arizona Cardinals, the team announced Friday.

Pro Football Network’s Aaron Wilson was the first to break the news.

Keke adds depth for the Cardinals at the tackle position that only has two players at the position on the roster in Leki Fotu and Rashard Lawrence.

Arizona does have rookies Manny Jones, Will Miles and LaRon Stokes on the roster, who all signed as undrafted free agents after the 2022 NFL Draft.

Wilson previously reported that Keke visited the Cardinals on Wednesday.

The 6-foot-3, 288-pound Keke was drafted in the fifth round (No. 150 overall) of the 2019 NFL Draft by the Packers after playing his college ball at Texas A&M.

He played three seasons in Green Bay, having his best year in 2019 when he started nine games and tallied four sacks.

This past NFL season, Keke played in 12 games for the Packers and had 2.5 sacks to go with 10 tackles and a forced fumble.

A presence at the line of scrimmage, the defensive lineman has five pass deflections in his career.

Keke was waived by the Packers on Jan. 19 and signed with the Texans on Feb. 14.

Houston would go on to waive Keke on May 3, making him a free agent.
