Chiefs Sign Goff, Upgrade Offensive Line

The Chiefs made possibly their highest-profile signing of the offseason Wednesday, inking 11-year veteran guard Mike Goff, who has been a starter the last nine seasons. He spent the previous five seasons with San Diego after six years in Cincinnati.

The 33-year old guard is extremely reliable, having not missed a start since 2002. The Goff signing marks the Chiefs' first acquisition of a probable starter via free agency this offseason.

Goff's addition could mean one of a few things. The first might point toward an answer for the Brian Waters conundrum. If the Chiefs are unhappy with Waters' request to be traded or released, and intend to give him what he wants, Goff could be his replacement on the left side. In that case, KC's offensive line would remain subpar.

But if General Manager Scott Pioli, Head Coach Todd Haley and Waters can work things out, the line has been improved. Goff and Waters would give the Chiefs a veteran guard tandem. Last season Adrian Jones, a converted tackle, played right guard for the Chiefs.
