As the Chiefs wrapped up their voluntary 3-day mini-camp on Thursday they added another linebacker to their roster, signing Orie Lemon.
The 6-1, 244-pound Lemon had been in for a tryout during mini-camp and he did enough to impress the coaches and personnel department that they signed him after the last practice. He becomes the 10th linebacker and 69th player currently on the Chiefs roster.
Lemon went undrafted coming out of Oklahoma State in 2010, signing as a rookie free agent with Dallas. He appeared in 4 games last year with the Cowboys, picking up 3 total tackles and a recovered fumble. He was a first-team All-Big 12 Conference selection as a senior and wrapped up his career with 229 total tackles.
Over most of his career, Lemon has been an outside linebacker.
