In need of defensive line depth, the Arizona Cardinals were to host free-agent defensive tackle Corey Liuget for a visit Thursday, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Per Rapoport, Liuget has also visited the New York Giants, Jacksonville Jaguars, and Seattle Seahawks.

Liuget, 29, has spent all eight of his NFL seasons with the San Diego/Los Angeles Chargers, playing in at least 11 games per season except 2018, when a suspension for violating the league's performance-enhancing drugs policy and a quad injury limited him to six games. The Cardinals' need for line help came in part with their release on Saturday of defensive end Darius Philon, an expected starter this season who was arrested in Tempe, Ariz., two days prior for what was called suspicion of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Arizona's unofficial depth chart now lists Zach Allen, a third-round draft pick out of Boston College, as a starter, but Liuget has experience there as well, having begun his Chargers' career as a full-time defensive end for three seasons. He spent his fourth season split between end and tackle. A first-round pick (18th overall) by the Chargers in 2011, Liuget has 24 sacks in his career, including a career-best seven in 2012.
