Chiefs Sign Free Agent Lineman Tony Ugoh
The Kansas City Chiefs have announced that they have signed free agent offensive lineman Tony Ugoh.
And no, he isn’t the one in the cape.
Here is what KCChiefs.com has to say:
"Ugoh (6-5, 301) has played in 40 games (28 starts) in five NFL seasons. He joins Kansas City after spending last season with the New York Giants where he appeared in three games (one start) at left tackle. Prior to his stint with the Giants, Ugoh spent a portion of 2010 with the Detroit Lions and his first three NFL campaigns with the Indianapolis Colts (2007-09). He originally entered the NFL as a second-round draft choice (42nd overall) of the Colts in 2007.The Houston, Texas, native earned All-America honors at the University of Arkansas where he also participated in track and field. He prepped at Westfield High School in Houston."
I was hoping that the first player signing we heard about today was Dontario Poe and that the second would be Dwayne Bowe.
Instead we get a journeyman lineman. Don’t be fooled by that bit about him starting, either. A player can start and only play one snap so long as that snap is the first snap. Ugoh played a grand total of 35 snaps last year for the G-Men. Though he did play two snaps in the Super Bowl. Good for him.
This is likely a camp signing.
Meanwhile, we’re still “Waiting For Go-Bowe/Poe.”
See what I did there?
