Chiefs Reportedly Sign Amon Gordon To New 2-Year Contract

The Kansas City Chiefs need to make some moves along their defensive line to bolster both depth and the middle, and they have reportedly agreed to a two-year contract with Amon Gordon — a move that brings both. Josina Anderson has the scoop.

Gordon was a nice surprise last season for the Chiefs defensive line with solid play all-around as a rotational player. Gordon had 23 tackles and he also registered the first two sacks of his nine-year NFL career. He’s the type of blue-collar, hard-working player that both Romeo Crennel and Scott Pioli love, so it’s not surprising to see them give Gordon a bit of security heading into this season.

For the Chiefs, they have now acquired several solid defensive linemen over the last three season. Anchors like Tyson Jackson and Glenn Dorsey on the outside have enhanced their game in the last year, and Allen Bailey was also a nice surprise as a rookie. Gordon gives them yet another name to rotate in for various packages. Expect the team to also address the middle in some way with a new body or two as Kelly Gregg might not be back with the Chiefs.
