The Kansas City Chiefs have re-signed defensive tackle Mike Pennel to a one-year contract, his agent announced Tuesday night.

Pennel signed with the Chiefs about halfway through the 2019 season and appeared in eight regular season games. He recorded 24 tackles and one sack during the regular season and then started two of the team's three playoffs games.

Pennel was undrafted in 2014 and signed with the Green Bay Packers as a free agent out of Division II Colorado State-Pueblo. He spent three seasons with the team, appearing in 37 total games before being claimed off waivers by the New York Jets. Pennel spent the next two seasons with New York, appearing in all 32 games and making 10 starts.
