Kansas City Chiefs Sign Offensive Tackle Ray Willis

Give the Kansas City Chiefs front office credit. if there's a perceived need on the field, the team is acting incredibly fast this preseason to give the coaching staff the bodies they need in camp for the sake of competition. Just one day after Tony Ugoh announced his retirement unexpectedly -- just days after signing as a late free agent with the Chiefs -- the team has announced the signing of another veteran offensive tackle in Ray Willis.

Willis is expected to compete with second year player David Mims, who was an undrafted free agent in 2011, and Donald Stephenson, the team's third round draft choice this season out of Oklahoma. Both players lack experience, so having someone like Willis is definitely helpful in camp as the coaching staff decides what the right set-up is with an offensive line loaded with potential but lacking in experience, especially on the overall depth chart.

Willis has previously spent time with the Seahawks, Dolphins and Jets among others. He came into the league in 2005.
