Colts free agent target Anthony Hitchens to sign with Chiefs

The Kansas City Chiefs are expected to sign linebacker Anthony Hitchens to a deal worth $9 million per year.

The Chiefs rumors have been swirling around free agency, especially around their need at linebacker.

The Chiefs have been remaking their defense at each level, and adding Hitchens will complete the renovation at the heart of the defense. Now he is pairing Hitchens to Ragland for a new interior tandem.

A former fourth-round pick by the Dallas Cowboys in 2014, Anthony Hitchens can play in most defensive fronts and play a few different versions of his position.

Hitchens' signing is consistent with the Chiefs' mandate to get younger this offseason. The Chiefs have often let the middle of the defense feature a rotating cast of hopefuls next to Derrick Johnson for years, but now Bob Sutton will have two formidable and reliable linebackers to work with instead of one Pro Bowler and a cast of Ramik Wilsons and Josh Maugas.

The University of Iowa product recorded 84 combined tackles in 12 games in 2017.
