A week ahead of the draft, the Chiefs signed offensive guard Otis Hudson to a deal. Terms have not been released.

A 6-5, 330 pound former fifth round draft pick (2010), Hudson spent the last four years with the Cincinnati Bengals but never appeared in a game, spending most of his time on the practice squad. Injuries have been a small problem for Hudson, but nothing major.

Hudson was a backup right guard for the Bengals, but also has experience at right tackle. Versatility is something Andy Reid values so that may play in Hudson’s favor.

This is a depth move, not a right guard solution.
