J'Marcus Webb, Kyle Love sign with Kansas City Chiefs

After testing his options for the 2014 seasonJ'Marcus Webb is joining the Kansas City Chiefs.

The offensive tackle is signing a one-year contract with the Chiefs, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday, citing a source informed of the player's plans. (The Chiefs confirmed the signing on Monday.)

Webb visited the Carolina Panthers and Minnesota Vikings last week, but settled on the team he worked out for in March.

The 25-year-old tackle spent 2013 with the Vikings after being cut by the Chicago Bears. Webb played just 108 snaps while appearing in eight games in Minnesota, starting one.

The seventh-round pick spent three seasons in Chicago -- the last two as the full-time starter. However, he often struggled to protect Jay Cutler's back. Pro Football Focus ranked Webb the 50th-rated offensive tackle in his last full season.

The Chiefs needed to add line help after losing tackle Branden Albert and guards Jon Asamoah and Geoff Schwartz in free agency.

While Webb lacks NFL starting skills, he can be a swing option and provide depth along Andy Reid's line.

Webb wasn't the only addition the Chiefs made Monday, as the team signed defensive lineman Kyle Love, Rapoport reported, citing Love's agent. 

Love, a four-year veteran, split the 2013 season with the Chiefs and the Jaguars, playing in just two total games with one tackle.
