Chiefs agree to terms with linebacker Zach Thomas

The Chiefs acquired 33-year-old linebacker Mike Vrabel earlier this offseason in the deal that landed the team QB Matt Cassell. Now they've added 35-year-old linebacker Zach Thomas to a suddenly more experienced defense.

The Chiefs, under new coach Todd Haley, plan to switch to a 3-4 defense like the Patriots ran, where new Chiefs GM Scott Pioli just came from. Vrabel and Thomas will join Derrick Johnson as starters, leaving one spot open to fill, perhaps through the draft.
