Chiefs sign J'Marcus Webb and three UDFA's

Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sport

Kansas City bolstered the offensive line depth with the addition of Webb, a former starter in Chicago.

The Kansas City Chiefs have signed offensive tackle J'Marcus Webb along with undrafted rookie free agents James Baker, Ben Gottschalk and Cairo Santos.

Webb, 25, comes in as tackle depth for an offensive line in need of some after the loss of Branden Albert to the Miami Dolphins earlier this offseason. It had been rumored that Webb was soon becoming a Chief, but now it is official. Webb was originally a seventh-round pick of the Chicago Bears, spending the first three years of his career there.

Webb was a starter the last two seasons, but struggled mightily to protect Jay Cutler. Webb is not a starting-caliber player by any stretch, but is a solid option off the bench who can play both sides. The signing of Webb also allows for Jeff Linkenbach to focus on strictly being a guard. Eric Kush is the backup center to Rodney Hudson.

Webb spent last season with the Minnesota Vikings, playing in eight games, one as a starter.

As for the rookies, Baker (6'2, 228 pounds) is a running back out of Idaho University. Baker averaged 4.1 yards per carry in each of the past two seasons for the Vandals, scoring a total of eight rushing touchdowns during that span. Despite having only eight catches last season, Baker racked up 177 yards and three scores.

Gottschalk in an offensive tackle out of SMU. The senior has some growing to do, "only" weighing 275 pounds despite a 6'5 frame. Last season, Gottschalk started all 12 games at left tackle for the Mustangs.

Santos is a Brazilian and kicked at Tulane University. Santos received ample playing time as a freshman, appearing in 12 games. Last year, Santos was given the Lou Groza Award as the nation's outstanding kicker.
