He was a solid starter for years but never a great DE IMO the great Chiefs D's of the 90's made him look better then he was. That being said not a bad back up and could help younger guys good locker room guy and team player hard worker his age has just caught up with him.

this move really makes no sense to me....instead of signing so much depth at DE why don't we go for secondary or WR or O-line; not all these guys will see the field.
