Chiefs sign Kyle Love

The Chiefs have shuffled up their defensive line after their first loss of the season.

They’ve waived defensive tackle Anthony Toribio and, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN, signed defensive tackle Kyle Love to take his place. Toribio played the most snaps he’s played all season on Sunday night after Mike DeVito left the game with a leg injury, but the Chiefs obviously decided they wanted a different option if DeVito’s absence is an extended one.

Love is a more experienced one. He started 25 games for the Patriots over the last three years, recording 65 tackles and 5.5 sacks. He was released in May after he was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes, a decision that came after the Patriots gave him the choice of retiring or being cut loose.

Love signed with the Jaguars, but got dropped from the roster heading into the opening week of the season.

    Chiefs need to sign someone who can actually catch the ball. Bring Tom Waddle out of retirement??

    Andy Reid has assembled a dynasty team and is destined to win multiple superbowls.

    Jealous?

    Dynasty? Poet, your comments certainly are amusing.

    Alex Smith will never be part of a dynasty.

    When you get cut from the Jags you know you suck….

    Because the Jags make such good personnel decisions?

    Poet, Andy Reid never assembled anyone on the Chiefs with the exception of their bad draft choices and Smith. Give him two drafts and watch the Chiefs disassemble which Reid has started with the release of Toribio.

    Looks like Reid played his first playoff bound team this weekend and……….

    I know I’m being tough on Reid but I’ve lived with his coaching the last 14 years.

    Really???? All talk but no statistics… Love’s stats are actually better than the DT the Chief’s waived.
