Kansas City Chiefs had a free agent visitor this week

Kansas City is taking a look at McBean to see if he can give the defensive line a bit of depth.

The Kansas City Chiefs have a visitor at One Arrowhead Drive.

Free agent defensive end Ryan McBean was in town, taking a tour of the facilities and talking with the front office to see if the Chiefs and he are a possible pair, according to the Baltimore Sun.

Let's be honest here; McBean is hoping to find any job after being on injured reserve for all of the 2012 season with a broken ankle with the Baltimore Ravens. McBean was originally a draft pick of the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2007 but washed out there, moving onto the Denver Broncos.

All that said, there is potential in McBean as a 305-pound lineman. After getting off the taxi squad for the first time in 2009, McBean had two years where he totaled no sacks and a total of 44 tackles.

In 2011, his last active season before injuring his ankle, McBean came on with four sacks and 33 tackles.

The native Jamican is only 29 years old, and would come in as a rotational piece for the Chiefs.
