The long, official list of free agents release earlier this hour has one unexpected name.

Veteran receiver Kevin Curtis, who made a comeback late last season after a bout with testicular cancer, signed with the Chiefs for the postseason game against the Ravens, after being cut by the Dolphins in late December.

Curtis agreed to give the Chiefs a right of first refusal for 2011, providing the Chiefs with a chance to match any offer Curtis may receive elsewhere.

It’s unknown whether anyone will have interest in Curtis, but he has shown in the past that he has a high degree of ability.

Curtis made one catch for three yards in the loss to Baltimore.

    I always liked him when he played for the Eagles. He works well in the slot.

    he’s a class act. i loved having him in philly, and was dissapointed when we cut him. good luck curtis wherever you go, because you deserve it

    high character guy. hes never going to be a big-part of anyones offense and is only getting older but he certainly could be a very solid 3rd-4th WR for the chiefs and be a vocal leader that can show Jonathon Baldwin (who has rumors of bad work ethic, questionable desire) what it takes to be successful in the NFL. Curtis could go a long way in showing Baldwin the right way to train, prepare and pratice through a season.

    Hes the forgotten man in Philly but he always over-achieved here, even when he was thrown into a no.1 WR role when in reality he was a much better fit for a slot,/3rd WR.

    Great guy, deserves whatever money he gets.

    good luck Kevin! on the field and in your fight with Cancer!

    Rumor is Curtis is headed to Tennessee. Hope the Titans decide to sign him.
