The Chiefs have a right guard.
Ryan Lilja signed with the team Tuesday, according to Josh Looney on Chiefs Live from the team’s website.
Lilja started every game during the Colts’ run to the Super Bowl in 2009, but the team wanted to get bigger on the offensive line and didn’t want to pay Lilja more than $4 million in 2010.
We doubt Lilja got that much from the Chiefs, which should make him a nice value. The Chiefs were desperate for a right guard after losing Wade Smith and cutting Mike Goff.
UPDATE: The Chiefs confirmed it’s a three-year deal.
