The Kansas City Chiefs have signed offensive tackle Geron Christian to a one-year deal, as first reported by Pro Football Network’s Aaron Wilson.

Christian, 25, entered the league as a third-round pick made by Washington in the 2018 NFL Draft. The 6-foot-6, 315-pound lineman tore his MCL after two appearances in his rookie season, and he spent two more years in Washington before landing with the Houston Texans.

Christian has appeared in a total of 38 games over the four years of his career, and he has 16 starts, including eight last season for the Texans. All eight of Christian’s starts were at left tackle, but he entered the game at right tackle in Week 1 and has more experience there from previous seasons.

Christian fits in the Chiefs’ offensive line room as a depth piece — a swing tackle who can enter the game should there be an injury to the starter.
