The Arizona Cardinals will have a new starting right tackle in 2016, as Bobby Massie has reportedly found a new home.

Massie, 26, was a fourth-round pick by the Cardinals (112th overall) in 2012 out of Ole Miss. In four seasons with the team, Massie played in 54 regular-season contests, starting 46 of them. Massie started 14 regular-season games last year and two playoff games, and was a stalwart on the line in 2014 as well, starting 17 contests, including a Wild Card playoff loss at Carolina.

He also served a two-game suspension at the beginning of 2015 for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy.

Massie was expendable for Arizona. General manager Steve Keim selected right tackle D.J. Humphries in the first round of the 2015 draft knowing Massie was headed into the last year of his contract. Humphries didn’t suit up once during his rookie campaign, but has drawn praise from head coach Bruce Arians for the improvement he showed over the course of the season.

Kyle Long started all 16 games at right tackle last season for the Bears, but with his versatility, he could be used at other positions on the Chicago offensive line, according to GM Ryan Pace.
