Chiefs Work Out Three Defensive Tackles

New, comments

The Kansas City Chiefs worked out three defensive tackles according to Brad Biggs of the National Football Post.

The players are William Joseph, Tim Anderson and Marlon Favorite.

Imagine this: If Favorite is signed (no indication that he will be), the Chiefs could send out an all LSU defensive line.  Tyson Jackson and Glenn Dorsey on the ends and Favorite in the middle.  Crazy, huh?

We're not quite sure if this means Todd Haley is unhappy with the nose tackle position.  It appears that he's at least willing to search for an upgrade, or maybe just depth to supplement the current tackles Tank Tyler and Ron Edwards.  I've previously given my support to Tyler who appears to have the tools to win the job.

But, Edwards is currently the No. 1 nose tackle on the depth chart.  He claimed that following the Philadelphia Eagles game.

Here's some information on the players that were in for a workout:

Joseph was a 2003 first round pick by the New York Giants.  He spent five years there before spending the majority of 2008 with the Oakland Raiders.  If you'll recall, he was the player released when the Raiders acquired Richard Seymour. Then, when Seymour didn't initially show up, he was re-signed, only to be released three days later when Seymour finally arrived.

He's listed at 6'5", 315 pounds.  He spent a brief part of his time at the University of Miami as a defensive end before settling in at tackle.

Anderson was a 2004 third round draft pick by the Buffalo Bills out of Ohio State.  He started a handful of games in his second year before being released in the middle of the 2007 season.  He spent the remaining part of that season and the following year with the Atlanta Falcons. The Cowboys signed him in January of this year before cutting him in training camp.

He's listed at 6'4", 315 pounds.

Favorite is a defensive tackle coming from LSU.  He spent time on the St. Louis Rams practice squad after going undrafted.  He's listed at 6'1", 317 pounds.  He is a 23 year old rookie.
