If he signs a contract, he would be joining his brother, Ryan Kalil, who also plays on the offensive line with the Panthers. It would be just the third time in NFL history that two brothers played on the same NFL offensive line.

Matt Kalil was drafted by the Vikings with the No. 4 overall pick in the 2012 draft out of USC. Kalil missed most of last season after being placed on injured reserve with a hip injury in September that required surgery. He played just two games last season after starting all 16 games the previous four years.
