Kansas City Chiefs will sign OT J'Marcus Webb

Jeff Hanisch-US PRESSWIRE

Webb has 44 career starts and is only 25-years-old.

Update: Webb officially has signed with the Chiefs.

The Kansas City Chiefs are continuing to focus on rebuilding their offensive line after sustaining several losses in free agency with the news that J'Marcus Webb will reportedly sign with the team.

The Chiefs visited with Webb just two months ago as they were surveying veteran options before the NFL Draft. The team grabbed two offensive line prospects in the sixth round of the 2014 NFL Draft in Laurent Duvernay-Tardif and Zach Fulton, but the former is very inexperienced and the latter is expected to compete at guard. Webb gives the team a veteran option heading into OTAs and training camp.

If anything, Webb likely has a good lead on the others to take the swing tackle role occupied by Donald Stephenson last year. With the loss of Branden Albert, Stephenson steps into a starting role along with Eric Fisher as bookends on the line. 

Webb will turn 26-years-old just before the NFL season begins, and he brings 44 career starts on his resume from 2010-2012 with the Chicago Bears. He's also a big body at 6'7, 335 lbs. A former seventh round pick, the small school prospect became a success story in his ability to stick with the team. He's not a solid starting candidate, but he will strengthen a line that's taken hits in Kansas City.
