The Kansas City Chiefs have signed veteran linebacker Joe Mays.
Veteran ILB Joe Mays agreed to a 2 yr, $6 m deal with the #Chiefs, source confirmed.

Mays is a former sixth round pick by the Philadelphia Eagles in 2008, meaning there is an obvious connection to Chiefs head coach Andy Reid.
Following his rookie season in Philadelphia, Mays had a three year stint with the Denver Broncos and played for the Houston Texans in 2013.
The signing makes a lot of sense. Former Chiefs starting inside linebacker Akeem Jordan is rumored to be heading elsewhere in free agency and the Chiefs needed some competition for 2013 fourth round pick Nico Johnson.
