After watching both Dee Ford and Justin Houston depart Kansas City this offseason, the Chiefs needed some help on the defensive line. Ogbah, while not the highest-profile addition, makes sense. He has 12.5 career sacks in three seasons with Cleveland.
Ogbah didn’t show up to voluntary workouts hoping for a trade. Ultimately, the Browns had made some additions that made parting with the 25-year-old Nigerian lineman a bit easier to swallow. He seems to have found a natural fit in Kansas City and will slot in there quickly.
