Chiefs Re-Sign Amon Gordon; Tender Belcher

The Chiefs list of soon to be unrestricted free agents was chopped by one on Monday as the team announced they had re-signed veteran DL Amon Gordon.

It’s a two-year deal with no details on the financials.

The Chiefs have also locked up their only restricted free agent ILB Jovan Belcher. He was tendered an offer of $1.972 million, which would give the Chiefs a second-round choice if any team decided to sign the fourth-year linebacker out of Maine.

After a journeyman’s career, Gordon seemed to find a home with the Chiefs last year. His versatility was used at nose tackle and defensive end, as he contributed 20 tackles and two sacks. That was easily the best season of his career that has included stops with six other NFL teams.

Gordon played in 15 games with two starts last season, giving him 33 games of experience and six starts over his career.

His signing leaves the Chiefs with 17 players who will become unrestricted free agents on Tuesday afternoon when free agency begins at 3 p.m. CST.

    Bob, how do you see this playing out for NT and DE where Gordon played? Is he a backup or is he bringing real competition to the position? I was thinking that we’d be drafting NT rather than getting one through FA.

    Bhive chill out we need depth at both postions. Gordon can provide that. He played good when giving chance he should’ve started over Gregg IMO. I think we will definitely make a run at Solai from Miami or nose tackle from the Jets. More good competiton we bring in the better. Now tommorow lets go get running back, some tight ends, and another nose tackle. Also would love us find good veteran safety to provide depth at that position behind Berry and Lewis. Draft wise I’d love see us fix the o-line its going be some good lineman in the draft. After that we just need go after best player available once we get few lineman that is.

    The Cardinals are releasing Levi Brown their starting left tackle and Houston is releasing Winston, their starting right tackle. We should take a look at both of them. Brown was a top five pick in 2007 and Winston has been a solid starter for several years. Both were cap casualties. One other thing I like about Brown being released is that maybe the Cardinals figure they can get Manning. Any team except the Broncos would suit me. We seem to be out of the running.

    Niblick, good points. We need to sign one of those 2 OT’s.
