"We acquired a very good football player via trade with the New Orleans Saints today," Chiefs General Manager John Dorsey said. "Ben is a talented veteran that has played a key role on a number of productive NFL offenses. He's smart, physical, and we believe he will be a good addition to our offensive line."

Grubbs (6-3, 310)has played in 122 games (118 starts) in eight NFL seasons with the New Orleans Saints (2012-14) and Baltimore Ravens (2007-11). He has served primarily as a left guard. Grubbs is a two-time Pro Bowler, earning his first selection in 2011 and his most recent in 2013. The Eclectic, Alabama, native, has protected the blindsides of two Super Bowl winning quarterbacks in Drew Brees and Joe Flacco. Grubbs earned a spot on the Pro Football Weekly/PFWA All-Rookie Team in 2007.

He originally entered the NFL as a first-round draft pick (29th overall) of the Ravens in the 2007 NFL Draft. Prior to being drafted, Grubbs was an All-American and All-SEC player at Auburn and prepped at Elmore County High School.
