At 1:00 p.m. today I said the Kansas City Chiefs would soon be making another roster move. By 3:00 p.m., the Chiefs made that move. Josh Looney of the team's official website reports the Chiefs have signed veteran offensive tackle Ray Willis. The corresponding roster move was waiving fullback Taylor Gentry, who failed his physical.

Willis was a 2005 fourth round pick by the Seattle Seahawks, where he stayed for five years. He spent time at right guard and right tackle and spent two seasons as the primary starter.

The retirement of Tony Ugoh opened up a roster spot and Romeo Crennel said on Tuesday that the team was working out free agent offensive tackles.

Willis was most recently with the New York Jets in 2012 and spent time with the Miami Dolphins and New Orleans Saints in 2010.

He'll join the swing tackle competition between 2011 third round pick Donald Stephen and 2011 undrafted free agent David Mims. Barring any injuries, it's hard to see how Willis can beat out a third round pick for the third tackle job.
