Chiefs Coach Confirms Bobby Greenwood Making Switch To Offensive Line

Kansas City Chiefs head coach Todd Haley confirmed to reporters on Thursday that Bobby Greenwood is now officially an offensive lineman.

He was previously playing defensive end -- a position he's played his entire life -- but Haley said on Thursday that he "officially a meat and potatoes guy" and it doesn't appear that will change any time soon.

"The one thing I didn't want to do to Bobby is start this back and forth thing," Haley said. "I think that would be a detriment to him making it in the league."

Greenwood has a brother that plays offensive line and Haley calls his dad a "monster" and that he makes Bobby look small.

"He got some work last year [on the scout team]," Haley continued. "We coached him. He wasn't just on cards. You have to have a guy that understands some of the blocking schemes and some of the twists. That will be an advantage to him having played a lot of defensive line."

Haley says he made clear to Greenwood that, while things can change, the offensive line is probably his "best chance" to make the team.

"With coach [Bill] Muir his guy is a great o-line coach but a great developer of offensive line talent," Haley said. "Through some discussions, and maybe some circumstance, this subject came up again and we felt there's a chance."

Haley indicated that part of the reason for the switch was "circumstance" which could speak to a number of things: Ryan O'Callaghan's slight injury this week, the depth along the right side of the line or even Barry Richardson's injury last week.
