Two-time pro bowler, Defensive Tackle John Henderson is said to be in Kansas City today to visit with the Chiefs.

Henderson, 31, was released by the Jacksonville Jaguars Monday after team was unable to cut-a-deal to trade him prior to the draft.  The release was made to make room for the Jaguars first round draft pick, DT Tyson Alualu.

After the Chiefs switched to a 3-4 defense in 2009, they have had trouble finding the right player to fill in that vital Nose Tackle spot in the defensive alignment. 

Glenn Dorsey who was drafted in 2008 to fit in the 4-3 defense, may not be the proper fit in the Chiefs 3-4.  One reason may be his lack of size in that position as he is 6-foot-1, weighing in at 297 lbs.

Henderson stands at 6-foot-7 and 335 lbs.  Although his productivity has dipped over the past few years as he enters in the final years of his career, he might be a good fit in the short-term for the Chiefs.

I mean really, who wouldn't want a guy on their team that gets ready for a game like this:




** Update - the scheduled meeting with the Chiefs and Henderson that was to take place today, was called off for unknown reasons according to the Kansas City Star**
