The Chiefs made a move to help fill their gaping hole at Safety and signed Reshard Langford from the Eagles practice squad. Langford was a 4 year starter at Vanderbilt.
Via Josh Looney over at KC Chiefs.com:
“(Practice squad) guys are free agents, essentially,” Haley said today. “There is probably a lot more pilfering that goes on that doesn’t show up because guys choose to stay put. This is a guy we’ve done a lot of research on and feel like it’s a guy who has a great opportunity with us.”
In a situation such as this, the player has the option to turn down the offer and stay with his current team. Obviously, Reshard thought he would have a better chance of getting on the field with the Chiefs. Welcome to the Red and Gold Reshard!
