Daniel Shirey-US PRESSWIRE

The Kansas City Chiefs announced today that they have signed 15 rookie free agents.

We told you about ten or so of these guys the night the draft ended. Now the team has confirmed the names with a few more added.

DB Neiko Thorpe (6-2, 185)

K Matt Szymanski (6-1, 196)

DB Terrance Parks (6-2, 218)

WR Brandon Kinnie (6-3, 220)

DE Ethan Johnson (6-4, 300)

OL Cam Holland (6-2, 320)

LB Dexter Heyman (6-3, 238)

DB Tysyn Hartman (6-3, 206)

FB Taylor Gentry (6-2, 250)

DB Chandler Fenner (6-1, 189)

DB Jean Fanor (6-1, 200)

RB Nate Eachus (5-10, 212)

OL Justin Cheadle (6-2, 290)

TE Tim Biere (6-4, 260)

WR Josh Bellamy (6-0, 206)


Here is the breakdown:











Obviously the Chiefs are looking to add help in the secondary, most likely at safety. Five of the 15 players are DBs.

The Chiefs also added a kicker. While doing some research on this kid I found out he hit a 61-yard FG in high school. Looks like a big leg/poor accuracy prospect.
