REPORTS: Chiefs sign G Kelechi Osemele
KANSAS CITY, MO. (WIBW) - Multiple reports are indicating that the Kansas City Chiefs have signed former All-Pro guard Kelechi Osemele.
Signing a replacement guard became important after losing guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif. The Chiefs starting right guard opted out for the 2020 season in order to continue work as a doctor.
Pro Football Talk with NBC Sports indicates that the one-year deal is worth $2 million.
Osemele, 31, brings a wealth of experience to Kansas City. He has logged 96 career starts and was selected to two Pro Bowls, including a first-team All-Pro selection in 2016.
The veteran guard has dealt with a variety of injuries. He is coming off shoulder surgery after playing three games with the Jets in the 2019 season. He was released from New York on Oct. 26.
