This is the point in the offseason where free agents get in where they fit in.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Chiefs signed former Vikings fullback Ryan D’Imperio

The former seventh-round pick of the Vikings from Rutgers was released in final cuts last year, and didn’t play in the league. A converted linebacker, he has two career receptions.

  1. I grew up with this guy played for Washington Township high school and was a beast with Rutgers …. If your a Chiefs fan you should be happy or will will be.. Extremely football smart and a HARD worker!!!

  2. From a Vikings fan to a Chiefs fan: this guy is pretty good. Expendable because of our depth, but he could start for a lot of teams that are using a FB. Not great, but solid.

  3. The new rule doesn’t mean a fullback can’t open up a huge hole or block for his running back down field, it just mean he can’t lower his head and lead spear the defender with the top of his helmet! That’s a great pick up for the Chiefs who haven’t had a real fullback since Richardson departed!!!

    He’s probably a better QB than anyone else on the roster.

    Nice job representing the packer fanbase. Talking about qb’s when the guy signed by the Chiefs is a fullback. A very talented fullback that packers are clueless about just like your comments.

  5. I’m a chiefs fan, so far, they haven’t really overspent. Filling holes, retaining talent, trading for smith, etc. It’s an unexpected pick up, but the chiefs have been doing great things this offseason. Starting with reid and Dorsey.

  6. Yeah, as a Vikings fan, I can say that I thought he was pretty good, he just got beat out by Jerome Felton and you only really have room for one linebacker on a team.

    Good signing by the Chiefs.

  7. I am pretty sure you meant fullback, and you Viking fans who commented on QB, is Ponder are Matt Cassell elite. At least who we do have now got his team to the Championship game to see who would go to the show. What has ponder did yet absolutely nothing. And you better hope he stays healthy because if you have to depend on Matt your in trouble. You would would do better bringing McNabb back.

  8. Soon they will have airbags attached to helmets so if there is actually helmet to helmet contact, they will inflate and prevent concussions they also will protect the neck area injuries. Can’t you just here a middle linebacker bragging and talking trash he had popped someone’s cherry!
