Former Chiefs Offensive Lineman Jordan Black Lands With Redskins

Former Kansas City Chiefs offensive lineman Jordan Black has enjoyed a longer career than many might realize given his inability to make it work with KC, but the Washington Redskins announced a deal with him recently as they add another body in camp to a unit that needs someone healthy.

Pro Football Talk's Darin Gantt writes, "The Skins are already without starting right tackle Jammal Brown for an undetermined amount of time after he suffered a setback to a previous hip injury. Then yesterday, left guard Kory Lichtensteiger had a knee scope, and is expected to miss a few weeks."

Black was the Chiefs fifth round choice in 2003 and remained with the team through 2006. Since then, he has remained in the NFL with a number of teams including the Texans, Jaguars and Saints. He has 40 career starts and could be a solid veteran addition for the Skins. It's the sort of training camp signing the Chiefs tried to make with Tony Ugoh before he retired.
