Chiefs sign former first rounder Danny Shelton to one-year deal


(610 Sports) – The Chiefs are signing another piece along the defensive line. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Chiefs are signing defensive tackle Danny Delton to a one-year deal.

Shelton becomes the second defensive lineman to sign with the Chiefs since the start of training camp, as the team recently signed veteran defensive end Carlos Dunlap to a one-year, as well.

Shelton is a former first round draft pick, getting drafted by the Cleveland Browns in 2015 with the 12th pick out of Washington.

Following his time in Cleveland, Shelton had with stops with the New England Patriots and Detroit Lions before spending the 2021 season with the New York Giants.

Shelton played 12 games with the Giants, amassing 31 tackles and collecting only 0.5 sacks with the team.

Although Shelton had recent visits with the Raiders and Panthers, the Chiefs apparently made him his best offer.
