Chiefs sign guard Otis Hudson

The Chiefs have added some interior line depth, signing ex-Bengals guard Otis Hudson on Thursday, according to the NFL’s transactions.

Hudson (6-5, 330) had stints on the Bengals’ practice squad in the 2010, 2011 and 2012 seasons and was briefly with Cincinnati last summer. He was a fifth-round pick of the Bengals in 2010. The 27-year-old Hudson played collegiately at Eastern Illinois and Minnesota.

Hudson figures as a potential reserve for Kansas City, which lost key guards Geoff Schwartz and Jon Asamoah in free agency. However, the Chiefs did add former Colts guard Jeff Linkenbach, who has NFL starting experience at right guard, the position held by Schwartz and Asamoah last season.

    Geoff Schwartz and Asamoah played the same position(RG), and Schwartz spent 2 years on the bench without a start before he spent half a season starting in KC, and now he is a “key” guard?

    beg to differ.

    and also wonder why Hudson is immediately written off as a camp body, when he has a similar resume to Schwartz and height/weight

    Schwartz got 750k last year.

    Sounds like Hudson made strides in Cincinnati but kept getting hurt. Maybe a change of scenery will be the key to help him.

    A suspect offensive line just got more average.

    “Ain’t nobody coming to see you, Otis! You wish you could work it the way I do, but there is only one David Ruffin!”

    Met him at training camp, very nice guy and a beast on the field, I cannot stand haters or just people that say stupid thing just to have a voice, the best story of all is when he proves all you nay Sayers wrong.
