The NFL is awash in draft pick signings right now, but the Chiefs have opened this week by signing a pair of veteran free agents.

Tackle J’Marcus Webb’s addition was reported early on Monday and he was joined later in the day by defensive tackle Kyle Love. Love’s agent RIchard Kopelman of Klass Sports announced the signing, which brings Love back to the Chiefs after he played one game for the team last year. Love was cut and wound up back in Jacksonville, where he spent the summer after being cut by the Patriots in the wake of a diabetes diagnosis, but Kopelman thinks signing early will help his client stick in Kansas City this time.

“When they let him go, we knew they liked Kyle, but it was one of those things where it wasn’t the right time or right place,” Kopelman said, via the Kansas City Star. “But we feel real good about his chances now because he’s coming in early and we’ll have opportunity to start fresh with everybody else.”

Love started 25 games over three seasons with the Patriots and the Chiefs could use some experience on the line after Tyson Jackson and other veterans left as free agents this offseason.
