Offensive lineman Russ Hochstein got to know the AFC West very well after playing for the Denver Broncos for 46 games (16 starts) from 2009-2011.
Hochstein left Denver after last season, and signed a one-year deal with the Arizona Cardinals, however, he was released by the Cardinals in their final cuts.
The good news for Hochstein is he gets to stay in the AFC West. The Kansas City Chiefs signed him to a one-year deal to fill in for an injured offensive line. Center Rodney Hudson is out with a knee injury, and that moved Ryan Lilja into the middle.
Before Hochstein was a Bronco, he played for the New England Patriots for seven seasons at a time when current Chiefs’ GM Scott Pioli was with the team.
