Romeo: "We are excited about the opportunity to make Kevin a member of the Kansas City Chiefs. Kevin has been a part of successful teams in the past and knows what it takes to win. I am eager to add him to our offense."
Pioli: "We felt that signing Kevin continued our free agent plan of adding good players to our roster. Kevin has a track record of personal and team success in this league and he is a good fit for us."
This is part of building depth on the Chiefs roster. Last year, the loss of Tony Moeaki was pretty bad. KC didn't really have a great replacement plan for him. This year, though, they'll have someone in place just in case there's another injury.
