KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) - It looks like the Kansas City Chiefs are starting to make moves on the offensive side of the ball after more than a week of defensive trade rumors.

A new report Monday evening from ESPN’s Adam Schefter claims the center Mitch Morse will be trading in barbecue for wings as he heads to the Buffalo Bills.

The 26-year-old, who played his college football just down I-70 in Columbia for Mizzou, was a second-round pick for the Chiefs in 2015, and he was on the Pro Football Writers 2015 All-Rookie team.

Morse played in 11 games for the Chiefs last year after fighting a foot injury during much of the prior year.

His strength is pass protection, allowing just five pressures in 534 pass-blocking snaps and not allowing a sack since his rookie season in 2015.

This change would mean the job would now be Austin Reiter's to lose after Reiter just signed a contract extension during the season.

Late Sunday, the team confirmed they had released linebacker Justin Houston to free up space in the salary cap, and a day before the Chiefs announced the signing of running back Carlos Hyde from Jacksonville.
