After cutting defensive lineman Anthony Toribio on Monday, the Kansas City Chiefs have reportedly signed defensive lineman Kyle Love.

Love came into the NFL in 2010 as an undrafted free agent out of Mississippi State with the New England Patriots. He was cut prior to the 2012 season shortly after being diagnosed with Type-2 Diabetes, which caused a lot of legal questions for the Patriots. Herbie Teope spoke with his agent who says Love is healthy.
This is an interesting signing because Love started 25 games for the Patriots between 2011 and 2012. Someone obviously feels he has some talent.
Assuming starting defensive end Mike DeVito is healthy, this is for a reserve defensive line position. That means Love probably won't be seeing a lot of snaps if everyone is healthy. It's when an injury pops up that he could be called upon.
Love, 27, is listed at 6'1 and 301 pounds.
