Kansas City Chiefs Player Profile: Kyle Love


The NFL regular season is just around the corner and with that, KC Kingdom is providing a player profile right up until week one kick off. Today’s featured player is defensive tackle Kyle Love.

How did Kyle Love become a Kansas City Chief?

Love was undrafted in 2010, but has still managed to have a decent career in the pros. He was born in South Korea, where his family was stationed at the time (his father was in the Army). Love played college football at Mississippi State for four seasons.

Love first signed with the New England Patriots and spent three seasons with them (2010, 2011, and 2012). Love signed with the Jaguars in 2013, but only was a member of their team for two games.

The Chiefs signed Love to a one-year deal last month. He spent some time in Kansas City in 2013, but didn’t stay in a Chiefs uniform very long.

2013 stats

Love only played in two games last year and both were for Jacksonville. He had one tackle in those two games.

Overall

Love didn’t have a terrific 2013 season, but he was a solid player when he was a Patriot. He started 25 games with the Pats and had 36 tackles and 5.5 sacks. He definitely won’t be a starter in Kansas City, but it will be nice to have a veteran on the defense who can come in and make plays when needed.

    It is nice to have veteran backup, then hope they’re never needed.
