The Chiefs brought four defensive lineman in for workouts at the team's mandatory minicamp on Tuesday, signifying a potential move at a position of strength.

Chris Jones, George Karlaftis, Mike Danna, Charles Omenihu, and Felix Anudike-Uzomah make up a ferocious defensive front, though it sounds like Steve Spagnuolo and Kansas City are open to adding additional bodies.

None of these players have been signed as of Tuesday afternoon but all have an opportunity to stick with the organization.

Chiefs News: KC Brings in Four Defensive Linemen For Workouts

It's logical for the Chiefs to bring these players in for multiple reasons. BJ Thompson's scary hospitalization creates a potential need at the back end of the depth chart. He was projected to receive increased snaps and served a special teams role as well, so Kansas City needs to prepare for his potential long-term absence.

Additionally, Charles Omenihu's recovery timeline isn't set in stone. The adage goes that you can never have too many pass-rushers and the Chiefs find themselves down a pair of talented players.

Jackson Cravens is a former teammate of second-round pick Kingsley Suamataia, both alums of the same school that produced Andy Reid. Perhaps the familiarity will give Cravens an edge, though I expect Kansas City to ensure the best players are on the final 53-man roster.

The team completed its first day of mandatory minicamp on Tuesday with the program scheduled to run through Thursday. We don't yet have reports as to the performance of these players, though their inclusion in the workouts implies the Chiefs want to make a move.

Considering the importance of the season, I expect the organization to leave no stone unturned.
