Chiefs sign Kelechi Osemele

One day after OG Laurent Duvernay-Tardif opted out of the 2020 season, the Chiefs have filled that void with another guard.

The deal is for one year and is worth $2 million, according to Ian Rapoport.

Osemele, 31, was drafted by the Ravens in the second round of the 2012 draft and started 14 or more games in three of his four seasons in Baltimore.

Osemele then spent three seasons in Oakland after signing a hefty five-year deal in free agency, earning first team All-Pro honors in 2016, along with Pro Bowl nods in 2016 and 2017. In 2019, Oakland traded him to the New York, but was released by the Jets after a shoulder injury in October.

Osemele will fill the gap left from the Duvernay-Tardif’s opt-out and will likely be a starter on the offensive line.
