Chiefs Continue Interest In Shaun Smith

Last week we reported the Chiefs were showing serious interest in free agent nose tackle Shaun Smith.

Since then, Arrowhead Pride commenters (led by JacinB) noticed his Twitter account had a Chiefs logo on it.

According to his tweets, he took a physical yesterday.

He was with the Bengals last season but they didn't offer him a tender as a restricted free agent. He had his best season in the NFL so far under Romeo Crennel in 2007.

The Chiefs definitely need depth at the nose tackle position. Currently, Ron Edwards is the starter but his age isn't exactly ideal for a nose tackle of the future. In addition to that, finding a nose tackle that's ready to play right away is about as difficult as finding a quarterback that's ready to play right away.

Smith, 27 28, was an undrafted free agent out of the school that Kent Babb built University of South Carolina.

Smith is listed at 6'2", 320 pounds.
