The Seahawks got rid of Drew Nowak last week, even though he entered last year as their starting center.

So with rosters at 90, you figured someone would pick him up.

The Chiefs became that somebody announcing they had signed Nowak along with three players who impressed them sufficiently as tryouts during rookie minicamp.

They also signed offensive linemen Zach Sterup and Garrick Mayweather and defensive back Shannon Edwards.

To make the required roster spots, they released offensive linemen Jake Bernstein, Ben Clarke and Laurence Gibson, along with defensive back Jordan Kovacs.

Nowak lost his starting job midseason and ended the year on the practice squad, but the Seahawks brought him back this offseason, before cutting him to make room for their own undrafted rookie class.
