Tony Ugoh decides to retire after less than a week with Chiefs

The Chiefs are once again looking for some tackle depth, after recent pickup Tony Ugoh abruptly retired.

The Chiefs official Twitter account reported the news, mentioning that he went through this morning’s walk-through before deciding to call it a career.

He just signed with the team last Thursday.

They’ve got little experience behind starters Branden Albert and Eric Winston, and will rely for now on third-round pick Donald Stephenson.

Ugoh, a former second-round pick by the Colts, had also played with the Giants and Lions.

    I can’t wait to hear all of the “clever” comments from fans of other teams about how nobody would ever want to play in Kansas City.

    My colts made a huge mistake drafting this huge slacker bust, one of polians mistake, but the bad part is he got a ring with the giants last year, only in america!!! Hope the chiefs didnt give him a signing bonus, whats up with players lately signing with teams then retire days later, like Boller in SD

    At least he didn’t hang around all year and steal the Chiefs money.

    Another great reason why the rookie wage scale had to be fixed.

    Not me. I was hoping he would stick and need to start via attrition. It would have helped the pass rush of Chiefs opponents this season.

    Stephenson will be just fine as a backup swing guy. Been kicking it do far in camp.

    David Mims and the other young linemen drafted by the Chiefs retired Tony Ugoh. He took one look around, saw a 2nd and 3rd round pick and David Mims and said bye bye. Go Chiefs
