DANA POINT, Calif. -- The Kansas City Chiefs have made an addition to their starting offensive line and a subtraction from the San Diego Chargers' roster in one move.

According to a source close to the deal, the Chiefs and Mike Goff agreed to a two-year, $3.5 million contract. The Kansas City Star first reported the story. He will start at either center or guard for the Chiefs who are looking to make upgrades on the offensive line.

The presence of Goff could allow the Chiefs to pursue a trade of Pro Bowl guard Brian Waters. The Kansas City Star reported several weeks ago that Waters wants to be traded. The Chiefs begin their offseason workout program Monday. The team is hopeful Waters shows up.

The Chargers had no plans to re-sign Goff, 33. He has a somewhat shaky 2008 season. The team will likely give Kynan Forney, who re-signed this offseason, a chance to start with Goff now in Kansas City.
