1:17pm: The Kansas City Chiefs announced via Twitter they have signed former Auburn defensive end and first-round pick Dee Ford.
Ford was selected No. 23 overall after being named First-team All-SEC at Auburn and garnering MVP awards at the 2014 Senior Bowl. With edge rushers Tamba Hali and Justin Houston already in the fold, the Chiefs are taking the adage, “You can never have too many pass rushers,” very seriously.
