This decision helps clear out the linebacker position in camp. Derrick Johnson returned for camp, and a battle brews for who plays alongside him. With rookie Ukeme Eligwe coming in, the depth chart at linebacker continues to grow.
New Chief Kevin Pierre-Louis comes in with 34 career games played in three seasons. His rookie season was cut short, but he managed to stay healthy during his last two seasons. He likely will come in to contribute on special teams, and may get time as an off ball linebacker. He also could see time as a rusher if given the opportunity. Time will tell to see how the Chiefs use their new linebacker.
