The Kansas City Chiefs brought in Shaun Smith before the 2010 season and he performed well for them before leaving in free agency. Before the 2011 season, the Chiefs brought in another defensive tackle in Amon Gordon and, like Smith, he played better than expected.

This time around, the Chiefs were able to keep Gordon. The agent for Gordon tells Josina Anderson of ESPN that the two sides have agreed to a two-year deal.

"The Chiefs felt like Amon played a key role on their defensive line, and they were aggressive in bringing him back into the fold."

Without knowing the terms of the deal, I'll say this is a good move. It's hard to find quality depth along the defensive line and Gordon can fill a couple of holes. He's not a starter so many people may not care about this move but I think it's a solid one to keep him, or at least provide competition in training camp until someone can beat him out.

We'll have another look at all the Chiefs free agents -- an updated list, after this Gordon signing -- a little later this afternoon.
