NFL Free Agency 2014: Kansas City Chiefs sign Vance Walker

The Kansas City Chiefs have poached a potential starting defensive lineman from a division foe, as former Oakland Raiders lineman Vance Walker has agreed to sign with the Chiefs. According to Pete Dougherty, the Chiefs will be locking up Walker after he cancelled his visit to the Green Bay Packers and refused all other offers for visits that may have come in

 

Walker will more than likely replace Tyson Jackson, who signed with the Atlanta Falcons on Tuesday, just minutes into the free agent period. With Jackson gone, the Chiefs have a need on their defensive line and it appears that Walker is the guy who may fill in.

He isn’t a well know pass rusher throughout the league, but we saw guys emerge in the Chiefs defense last year, and a season up front for the Chiefs in 2014 may turn Walker into a name that quarterbacks dread to hear.

[UPDATE:]
