The Arizona Cardinals have a competition going for their starting right tackle position and have worked out 32-year-old free agent right tackle Tyson Clabo.

Clabo and the Red Birds could not reach an agreement, according to an report.

The 10-year NFL veteran started 15 games at right tackle for the Miami Dolphins last season. He previously played nine seasons with the Atlanta Falcons (2004-2012).

The Cardinals have Bradley Sowell, Nate Potter and Bobby Massie vying for the position. In addition, Eric Winston, who started all 16 games on the right side for Arizona in 2013, remains an unrestricted free agent.

Clabo has played in 116 games during his NFL career. He was benched in Miami last season after giving up eight sacks in the first six games. Clabo regained his starting spot after Jonathan Martin left the team. Clabo's play improved during the second half of the season.

The Red Birds are in the midst of mandatory minicamp workouts.

Back in March, the Cardinals signed free agent left tackle Jared Veldheer to protect quarterback Carson Palmer's blind side.

Now they need to get the right tackle position settled.
