Chiefs sign six, release two others

The Chiefs have joined the parade of teams announcing their undrafted free agent signings and they added a couple of released players to the announcement.

Kansas City is parting ways with fullback Eric Kettani and wide receiver Rashad Ross. Kettani, a graduate of the Naval Academy and a Lieutenant in the Navy reserve,┬áspent time with the Patriots (as seen in the picture accompanying this post) and on Washington’s practice squad before signing with the Chiefs in December. Ross joined the team last November and also spent time with the Titans last year. Neither player has seen any regular season action.

The Chiefs signed Georgia State wide receiver Albert Wilson, Tennessee-Martin linebacker Ben Johnson, BYU safety Daniel Sorensen, Louisiana-Lafayette wide receiver Darryl Surgent, Tennessee State cornerback David Van Dyke and Abilene Christian running back Charcandrick West.

The moves leave the Chiefs with 84 players, so they may have more signings to announce in the coming days.

    I wake up every morning hoping Manning breaks his neck on the field one of these days.

    I’m sure that these two UDFA’s will fix their wide receiver problem. And Alex Smith thought he was done getting a raw deal when he got traded…

    Raider fans don’t wish that they’re opponents break anything. We want em in full strength when the Raiders have conquered n won! Pretty classless chef fans…

    If the KC receiver cupboard is so bare don’t you think AR and Dorsey would have made it a priority? Kcfan can espouse his opinion about draft needs but the coach and front office get fired if they don’t do the right thing. I trust them more than all the pontificators

    The chiefs averaged 35 points a game year. The offense will be very good

    Raiders fan calling anyone classless is funny

    KC put up 45 in a playoff game w/ no Charles. the offense clicked the 2nd half of the year. AJ Jenkins came on strong and may push for PT, Kelce will actually be playing TE this year, and they replaced Mccluster with a faster mccluster in Thomas

    so it will only be better. younger guys like Hemmingway will only be better players

    ideally they fix the WR issue next year. why force it? they got tremendous value in the draft for having all of 6 picks

    44-

    Funny how the teams with the most and highest picks always get the best grades. The Chiefs had six, SIX PICKS! I think that R&D did the best job they could with the picks that they had. Plus, the Chiefs had three picks that didn’t get out of training camp last year because of injuries. So in reality, they have nine picks this draft, three of which have a year under their belts. Until Reid and Dorsey show me otherwise, I’m a believer.
