The deal is a one-year contract at the veteran minimum, according to Herbie Teope. Teope confirmed the initial report from Love's agent at Chiefs Spin:
“Kyle is very happy,” Kopelman told ChiefsSpin.com. “Kansas City has come a long way. We think they’re going to be a contender for years to come. “It’s a solid organization with a great tradition and Kyle is a good fit. He’s a good Kansas City kind of guy. I think it’s a really good fit on both sides of the equation.”
Love appeared in one game for the Jacksonville Jaguars and Chiefs both in 2013 as a journeyman DT. He entered the league in 2010 as an undrafted free agent with the New England Patriots and stuck with the team for three seasons before being released. The Jags picked him up on waivers last May and released him in September. The Chiefs signed and released him within a two-week stretch in late November to early December.
Love brings a good amount of experience to the table with the Patriots, with 25 starts in his three season in Foxboro. He has 37 career tackles and 5.5 career sacks.
