Chiefs Sign Guard Mike McGlynn

In an attempt to improve their depth at guard, the Chiefs have signed veteran Mike McGlynn.


McGlynn is a 6-4, 325-pound lineman who has six seasons of NFL experience with the Indianapolis Colts (2012-2013), Cincinnati Bengals (2011), and Philadelphia Eagles (2008-2010). The latter team, with then-coach Andy Reid, leads one to think McGlynn could make the roster for the Chiefs because of his experience with the offense.

His last two seasons with the Colts have been something of a disaster, with -21.1 and -30 overall grades in 2012 and 2013. Before arriving with the Colts, he was league average for the Eagles and Bengals, which leads one to also wonder if McGlynn just was not a fit for Indianapolis’ scheme.

At this stage the Chiefs could use anybody who can compete for the guard jobs with Jeff Allen moving to right tackle to fill in for the suspended Donald Stephenson. Jeff Linkenbach and Ricky Henry were awful Saturday night. Improved play at left guard and the development of Zach Fulton would go a long way towards getting the offensive line back on track.

To make room for McGlynn on the roster, the Chiefs released offensive lineman Ben Gottschalk.
