Chiefs Add Offensive Lineman

From the Truman Sports Complex

The Chiefs claimed guard Ricky Henry off waivers from New Orleans on Tuesday.

To make room for him, they released long snapper Brad Madison from Missouri.

Henry, 6-4, 310 pounds out of the University of Nebraska entered the NFL two years ago when he signed as an undrafted rookie free agent with the Chicago Bears. He was cut before the start of the 2011 regular season, but added to the Bears practice squad. He was added to the 53-man roster in November. Chicago released him on the final cut before the 2012 season.

The 26-year old native of Omaha was signed to the Saints practice squad last year and was moved to the active roster in December. He was released by New Orleans on Monday.

At Nebraska, Henry earned first-team All-Big 12 conference status as a senior, starting 14 games at right guard. He joined the Cornhuskers after two years at North Dakota State College of Science.
