I was just putting the finishing touches on our offensive line preview for Kansas City Chiefs training camp but now I'll have to do some tweaking. The Chiefs announced that they've signed offensive lineman Tony Ugoh.

Interesting move here...

Ugoh, 6'5 and 301 pounds, was the Indianapolis Colts 2007 second round pick. He spent three years in Indy before moving onto the Detroit Lions in 2010. He spent last season with the New York Giants where he had one start at left tackle.

In five NFL seasons, he's played in 40 games with 28 starts.

So how does he figure into KC's plans?

At offensive tackle, we believe Branden Albert and Eric Winston are your starters. Behind them, Donald Stephenson, a 2012 third round pick, will compete with David Mims for the swing tackle spot. That puts Ugoh competing with Stephenson and Mims.

Also of note is that Ugoh does take up a roster spot. If I'm counting right, that's 89 roster spots that have been taken up (not counting Bowe). That leaves one spot for both Bowe and Poe, meaning the Chiefs may not expect one or both of those guys to show up today.
