The Chiefs have signed all of their draft picks except for first-round defensive tackle Dontari Poe.
The team announced Thursday that they have signed third-round tackle Donald Stephenson. Stephenson signed a four-year contract with Kansas City.
At the Chiefs’ rookie minicamp, Stephenson worked at left tackle. He played the same position at Oklahoma, but will probably see some time on the other side as well. The Chiefs will start Branden Albert on the left side and Eric Winston on the right, but Stephenson could become the swing backup behind them as a rookie.
“Whenever they call on me, whenever they need me, I’ll be happy to help,” Stephenson said in the team’s statement announcing the signing.
Albert is heading into the final year of his contract, but there have been reports of contract talks between the two sides. That would work out well as Stephenson has the size for the position but probably needs a little more seasoning before he’d be ready to fill it.
