The Chiefs have added some interior line depth, signing ex-Bengals guard Otis Hudson on Thursday, according to the NFL’s transactions. Hudson (6-5, 330) had stints on the Bengals’ practice squad in the 2010, 2011 and 2012 seasons and was briefly with Cincinnati last summer. He was a fifth-round pick of the Bengals in 2010. The…

The love child of Rodney Hudson and Otis Taylor.

This is a sign we will not be selecting a oline with our 1st pic.

How is that? He is a PS material. It is clearly a sign that it is a position of concern.

Well....that's a yawner of a signing. Maybe he turns into something.....like maybe a decent backup. Maybe not.

I have no problem with a 'good' FO signing 'projects.' Like seek says it's a sign of concern. But I have seen us sign 'projects' like Derron Cherry who was signed as a punter and became a pro-bowl safety. So who knows? Maybe this guy will surprise us too.

Reid is supposedly high on rashaw johnson at guard and said its his spot to lose. I think there just bringing in competition. Still think its a sign we wont go oline with the 1st pick. We either go wr pr de with our 1st pic if I was a betting man.

I'm betting with you on that one, as well. I like O-Lineman as much as anyone, but I have to believe that the Chiefs brass is looking in the later rounds at O-Line. WR or Defensive front 7 player is more likely with this years top draft pick.

Seems reasonable to me. Smith could certainly use more targets to throw to and then there is cause for concern about Bowe after his performance last season. So a WR seems like a pretty big need this year. I see us having a greater "need" in the secondary than on the D-line but neither is strong enough that it couldn't use some help.

All in all though, I see a WR as our biggest single "need" right now.

Granted, it's a vanilla signing...But there might be other reasons why he got signed. Check out his background. Similar to Micheal Oher's.

We dont have a de or a fs. If I was going to choose id go with de whocan get to the qb which is the #1 ingredient in stopping manning or any qb. Plus I think it's more likely to find a gem at fs in the later rounds than a de. Unless you can find a younger jared allen that is.

John Dorsey is thinking the same thought. Here's a quote of his posted today from kcchiefs.com.


"Anytime you can get internal, generate internal pressure with the pass rush, I think that’s critical, because it helps those defensive backs in the secondary as well. So, anytime you can get an interior pass rusher, there is some added value, within that pick."

If the enemy QB is running for his life you can get by with a mediocre secondary but that is a gambling way of life. If the QB get's free of the rush he is going to burn you bad. One way or another, we have to figure out how to hold even the best QBs to less than 5 TDs. Either that or we have to figure out how our offense can win games that go over 40 points per side. Gotta do one or the other.

We lost 2 of 4 games last year where we scored more than 37 points. Can't win the Super Bowl that way.

They've got their eye on Tuitt for sure. Tuitt would have some very good veteran mentors that are already in that Defensive Front 7 and D-Line coach Tommy Brasher is one of the best.
