Fanaika spent the last two seasons with the Arizona Cardinals.

The Kansas City Chiefs have made their first move along the offensive line with the signing of offensive lineman Paul Fanaika. Friend of the site Herbie Teope first had the report.

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.
