Chiefs take a look at Runyan

The Kansas City Chiefs gave a tryout to former Pro Bowl tackle Jon Runyan on Wednesday.
This is an interesting development. The Chiefs desperately need help at tackle and Runyan has been looking to get back into the league. If Runyan was impressive in the tryout, I would not be surprised if he were quickly signed by the Chiefs.
Kansas City has plenty of salary-cap room, so money won’t be an issue. At this point, the Chiefs, who cut tackles Damion McIntosh and Barry Richardson in the past few days, aren’t going to find a better option than Runyan, a former Philadelphia standout. This would be a good pairing.
