Chiefs trade for Ogbah, send Murray to Browns
The Kansas City Chiefs have acquired defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah in a trade with the Cleveland Browns.
Kansas City were looking for a pass rusher after trading Dee Ford to the San Francisco 49ers and letting go of Justin Houston, and will now look for Ogbah to fill the void.
They announced the news on Monday, moments after Ogbah tweeted a celebratory emoji.
Kansas City dealt safety Eric Murray to Cleveland in the trade.
