The Kansas City Chiefs have added yet another face to the ILB position battle to play next to Derrick Johnson. Mike Garafolo of USA Today reports former Cowboys’ LB Orie Lemon has signed with the Chiefs after he really impressed coaches during a work out.
In recent weeks Kansas City has signed Zac Diles and Akeem Jordan to compete for this spot. There is no clear front runner so Lemon has a chance to make the team if he excels.
Lemon came into the league as a undrafted free agent in 2011 and then jumped from the practice squad to the Cowboys active roster in 2012 when Sean Lee was hurt for the season. He only has five NFL games under his belt so he does not have a lot of experience, but if the Chiefs see promise they maybe able to mold him into the LB they are looking for.
