Chiefs Sign Free Agent DT Daniel Muir

The Kansas City Chiefs added their second free agent of the Dorsey/Reid era when they announced the signing of defensive tackle Daniel Muir on Friday.


The Kansas City Chiefs signed free agent defensive tackle Daniel Muir, the team announced Friday.

Muir entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Green Bay Packers in 2007. He’s played in 46 games (26 starts) in six seasons with Green Bay (2007), Indianapolis (2008-11) and the New York Jets (2012), recording 111 tackles (88 solo), 0.5 sacks (-5.0 yards) and one pass defensed.

There’s something to be said for playoff experience and Muir has some. He’s started in all four postseason games he’s appeared in, recording 16 tackles (11 solo) and 1.0 sack (-5.0 yards), including starting Super Bowl XLIV against New Orleans, while with the Colts (2010).

Muir played only 44 snaps for the Jets last year but he should be at least a little familiar with new defensive coordinator Bob Sutton’s offense.

Truth be told, this looks like a bad signing. Muir has been graded terribly by PFF over the course of his career. In 2009 he played over 600 snaps and graded out at a -9.1. In 2010, where he got the “playoff experience” the Chiefs tout in their announcement, Muir graded a pathetic -26.0. That’s B-Rich bad, folks.

After that Muir’s career has pretty much fizzled out.

I don’t get this signing. Seems like just an attempt to stock the roster with a guy the new regime is familiar with.

    right now, i believe kc is just stocking up the roster to their 90-man limit right now. if he makes it to the 53-man roster, then i’d be worried.

    Where was all this dismay when Pioli signed Palko as his first other roster signing?

    Maybe this guy has something Reid has been wanting to see. Do not know but let’s see in training camp not Jan
