Stefan Charles wasn’t out of work for long. The Chiefs announced that they have re-signed the defensive tackle, just days after releasing him.
Charles saw time as a reserve for the Bills and Lions, but hasn’t played much since 2016. Last year, Charles spent much of the year on the workout trail before signing with the Chiefs just prior to their January Wild Card loss to the Titans. He was re-upped in March, then cut on Tuesday along with Rakeem Nunez-Roches, but now he’s back in the fold.
Charles, who will turn 30 in June, registered five sacks for the Bills between 2013-2015. He has 49 career games and two starts on his resume.
The Chiefs project to start newcomer Xavier Williams at nose tackle with third-round pick Derrick Nnadi serving as a backup. Charles will compete with Justin Hamilton and others for a spot on the roster as a reserve DT.
