Inside linebacker Joe Mays (L) and offensive lineman Jeff Linkenbach are the newest Chiefs
The Chiefs reversed the direction of the player flow on their roster Wednesday when they added a pair of unrestricted free agents.
After losing five of their own free agents on Tuesday, the Chiefs signed inside linebacker Joe Mays and offensive lineman Jeff Linkenbach.
The 5-11, 245-pound Mays will turn 29 in July. He entered the NFL out of North Dakota State in the 2008 NFL Draft, selected in the sixth round by Andy Reid when he was in Philadelphia.
Mays played two seasons with the Eagles, three with Denver and last season with Houston. He’s played in 61 games, with 36 starts and had 204 total tackles, 1.5 sacks, a forced fumble and he scored a safety last season.
The 6-6, 303-pound Linkenbach will be 27 years old in June. He entered the NFL as an undrafted rookie free agent out of the University of Cincinnati in 2010 with Indianapolis. In four seasons with the Colts, he played in 60 games, with 33 starts at right tackle and both left and right guard.
