[Kansas City.com] More than two weeks after the start of the free-agency signing period, the Chiefs made a dip into the talent pool Sunday.
Just don’t look for the splash. Their contract agreement with Buffalo defensive tackle Ron Edwards might make barely a ripple.
Edwards, 26, played five seasons with Buffalo, only one as a full-time starter, and missed all but four games last season because of a shoulder injury. He projects as depth, perhaps a third tackle if veteran starter John Browning decides to retire.
The contract agreement with Edwards might be the kind that only a coach can get excited about. But head coach Herm Edwards and Tim Krumrie, the defensive-line coach, know Ron Edwards well.
While with the Jets, Herm Edwards coached against Ron Edwards. While with the Bills, Krumrie coached him.
When healthy, Edwards has been productive. He had four sacks two years ago. But he missed most of the year in two of the last three seasons because of injuries.
“That’s a great signing for us,” Herm Edwards said of the 6-foot-3 320-pound Ron Edwards, a product of Texas A&M. “He’s a big inside guy, a powerful man. He’s been a good player.”
