Chiefs claim offensive lineman, waive defensive lineman Joey Ivie

Do the Chiefs want info on the Ravens? Do they need tackle depth with the Eric Fisher injury? Is it both?

The Kansas City Chiefs have claimed offensive lineman Greg Senat off waivers from the Baltimore Ravens, the team announced Monday via its official Twitter account.

Senat, 25, first entered the league as a 2018 sixth-round pick made by the Ravens. Senat was placed on injured reserve due to a foot injury in August of 2018. In 2019, he made the Ravens’ initial 53-man roster but was waived on Saturday.

Senat has yet to play in a regular-season game.

The Chiefs play the Baltimore Ravens this week, so Senat will be ripe for intel, and then there is the injury situation involving starting left tackle Eric Fisher. Fisher tried to play through a groin injury on Sunday against the Raiders and could not, leaving the game after just three plays. Cam Erving played left tackle for the rest of the game.

Senat started 22 games at right tackle at Wagner College, and (Chiefs fans will like this) he also played four seasons as a member of the basketball team.

The initial 2018 draft writeup on Senat from’s Lance Zierlein was not so great:

ZIERLEIN: Senat lacks bulk but looks the part in the uniform if he could add functional mass. Unfortunately, he looks better than he plays at this point and needs a great deal of technique work as both a run blocker and pass protector. Senat is a project who might be able to find a spot on a practice squad while he works on getting bigger and better.

The Chiefs are likely to provide more information on Fisher on Wednesday when the team begins preparation for the Ravens. Defensive lineman Joey Ivie, who made the initial 53-man roster in a bit of a surprise, was waived to make room for Senat.
