Once a foe, Melvin Ingram may become a friend in Kansas City.

The Kansas City Chiefs are set to host the free-agent linebacker for a visit this upcoming week, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reports, per a source.

Ingram had spent his entire nine-year career with the Los Angeles Chargers until becoming a free agent this offseason. Ingram produced 49 total sacks during his time with the team that selected him at No. 18 overall in 2012. An injury-latent season in 2020 held the soon-to-be 32-year-old to just seven games, but Ingram still managed to get five sacks last year.

Adding Ingram is an intriguing play for the Chiefs. The team compiled just 32 sacks (22nd in NFL) during the regular season and the pass rush was bottled up completely in the Chiefs loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Super Bowl LV. Couple in the element of an intra-divisional rivalry and you have yourself a find.
