G Paul Fanaika also has ties to Andy Reid, who used a seventh-round pick in 2009 on Fanaika out of Arizona State while with the Eagles.— Herbie Teope (@HerbieTeope) March 11, 2015
Fanaika is a big man at 6'5, 327 lbs. and comes with a lot of starting experience up front with the Arizona Cardinals for the last two seasons with 30 total games started.
Fanaika's signing comes after the Chiefs lost center Rodney Hudson, who signed with the Oakland Raiders earlier this offseason for $45 million over five seasons. He joins Ricky Henry, Jeff Allen and Zach Fulton among the guards on the roster, along with young versatile players like Laurent Duvernay-Tardif and Eric Kush.
