Chiefs sign defensive lineman, Taco Charlton, to a one-year deal

One day after being waived by the Dolphins, Charlton finds a home with the defending Super Bowl champions

The Kansas City Chiefs have signed 2017 first-round pick, Taco Charlton, to a one-year deal.

The Chiefs will be Charlton’s third team in four seasons. As the 28th overall pick in the 2017 draft by the Dallas Cowboys, Charlton had 46 combined tackles and only four sacks in 27 total games. After being released by Dallas during the 2019 season, he signed with the Dolphins. In just 10 games in Miami, he finished as the team leader in sacks with five.

The Chiefs will add Charlton to an already full defensive line. Chiefs defensive line coach Brendan Daly gets a 25-year-old 6-foot-6, 270-pound pass-rusher to rotate with Frank Clark, Alex Okafor, Tanoh Kpassagnon, and Breeland Speaks. Charlton also helps fill the voids left by defensive ends, Emmanuel Ogbah and Terrell Suggs.
