The Chiefs made one big change on their defensive line, but they’ve brought another key part back.

According to a tweet from his agent, Chiefs defensive end Jarvis Jenkins has re-signed for another year.

The Chiefs brought Jenkins in after he was cut by the Jets in November, and he provides a solid rotational option for them. They let nose tackle Dontari Poe walk out the door in free agency, and replaced him with former Eagles lineman Bennie Logan.

Jenkins was originally a second-round pick by Washington, and has also spent a year with the Bears.

  1. Jones played as good as Poe ever did last year and they were missing 2 starters as well. If heathy the D line will be much improved with the backups gaining valuable experience last year. Need a ILB and a CB and the D should easily move into the top 10. Houston wasn’t ever 100 last year either, he’s the biggest key.

    This is why I didn’t mind seeing Poe go. Our interior D line play last year was pretty bad, which seriously affected the play on the outside. To many time Hali, Houston, and Ford did their job beating the corner only for the QB to step into the pocket and evade the sack. You don’t collapse the pocket in the middle and it makes it really tough for the outside guys to get to the ball. We need to get that “guy” in the middle again that demands double teams, Poe didn’t have that last year.
