Chiefs Offseason 2012: Veteran Offensive Tackle Tony Ugoh Suddenly Retires

Five days after signing with the Kansas City Chiefs, 28-year-old veteran offensive tackle Tony Ugoh decided he didn;t want to play pro football anymore and abruptly retired. Uzoh was brought in to add depth to the offensive line and was the only player in camp with any NFL experience at the tackle position.

Ugoh was expected to provide depth at both tackle positions and was the only reserve tackle in camp with any NFL experience. With Ugoh out of the equation, the Chiefs will rely on third-round pick Donald Stephenson and second-year tackle David Mims to back up Branden Albert and Eric Winston. Second-round pick Jeff Allen could also factor in, but Allen is more likely to be the team's top backup at left guard.
