Chiefs sign Mike McGlynn

Offensive lineman Mike McGlynn was one of the players dropped by the Redskins this week as they dropped to 75 players, but he didn’t spend much time out of work.

The Chiefs announced on Wednesday that they have signed McGlynn. They waived offensive lineman Ben Gottschalk to make room for him on the roster.

Kansas City is set to start the season without right tackle Donald Stephenson, who will serve a four-game suspension for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing drugs, and rookie Zach Fulton is starting at right guard. With Eric Fisher struggling in his transition to left tackle, the team has a need for other options should they need to shuffle the line.

McGlynn has made 48 starts on the interior of the offensive line over his career so he should be able to give the Chiefs that depth at the very least.

    Nice. I remember this guy coaxed Dontari Poe into a taunting penalty in a colts vs. chiefs game. Now he is a Chief though. Welcome aboard Mr. McGlynn. Go Chiefs.

    He sucks as a guard but decent as a center.

    ex-eagle which is andy reid connection.

    kc may have issues this yr. could they be one and done in the reid era ? in a related note, reid has proven under his leadership, his team’s roster gets slightly worse each yr.

    colts should have resigned him to play center.

    He was a passable backup for the Bengals. Not exciting. The fact that he played for Gruden in Cincinnati and Gruden cut him so early from Washington’s roster isn’t the best sign though.

    Is this the first time that Reid has ever signed an ex-Eagles as Chiefs coach???

    He had a pretty brutal pre-season at center for the Redskins. When Chris Chester is a better option at Center, then you need to step it up
