Chiefs sign Mark Harrison


A former Patriots receiver has landed with Kansas City.

Mark Harrison, whom New England waived earlier in June, has signed with Kansas City, the club announced Friday.

A first-year pro from Rutgers, the 23-year-old Harrison sat out the 2013 season with a foot injury. The Patriots signed him as an undrafted free agent last May. Harrison hauled in 44 passes for 583 yards and six touchdowns in his final season with the Scarlet Knights.

According to Nick Underhill of, Harrison was tardy to one of New England’s OTA sessions before being released from the club.

Harrison is one of 13 receivers on the Chiefs’ roster, with Dwayne Bowe the top target and Donnie Avery likely to have a key role. However, there is some uncertainty thereafter on the depth chart.
