The Indianapolis Colts don't seem to be making many moves early in the legal tampering period and one of their top targets in linebacker Anthony Hitchens will reportedly sign with the Kansas City Chiefs. This is according to Ian Rapoport.

Hitchens is a former fourth round selection for the Cowboys in the 2014 NFL Draft who became an important starter in the middle for Dallas.

Hitchens was linked to the Colts even before the legal tampering period began and he was thought of by many as the ideal match for the new 4-3 defense, which will be run by his former linebackers coach in Matt Eberflus.

Hitchens' signing is consistent with the Chiefs' mandate to get younger this offseason.

The Chiefs rumors have been swirling around free agency, especially around their need at linebacker.

Hitchens recorded 84 total tackles last season (the highest mark of his four-year career) despite only appearing in 12 games. He should also help shore up the Chiefs' leaky run defense, which ranked just 25th in the league last season.
