The Kansas City Chiefs continued to tweak the depth of the offensive line by claiming guard Ricky Henry off waivers from the New Orleans Saints. To make room on the roster, the Chiefs waived long snapper Brad Madison.
Henry started in the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Chicago Bears in 2011 out of Nebraska. After being released by the Bears, Henry signed in New Orleans the next day. He played in two games during his first two seasons in the league.
Now Henry will try to make a push for one of the final spots on the offensive line that seem to still be up for grabs two weeks before final cuts.
Madison was hoping to beat out incumbent long snapper Thomas Gafford after starring on defense for the University of Missouri. He’s got the kind of motor — not to mention an ability to be a specialist — that should help him compete for a job somewhere.
