The Kansas City Chiefs have announced that they’ve agreed to a deal with rookie first-round pick Dontari Poe.
Entering the day, there was some concern over whether or not the team would have Poe to training camp on time.
Poe, like all first-round draft picks, agreed to a four-year deal with a fifth-year team option. Per team policy, financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Poe’s signing means that the Chiefs will begin training camp practices with all of their draft picks under contract for the first time in six years.
This is good news for Chiefs fans.
Now here is the bad.
As far as I can tell, the Chiefs’ roster now stands at 90, which is the limit. The signing of Poe and offensive lineman Tony Ugoh, leads me to believe that the Chiefs may not be expecting Dwayne Bowe to report to camp. Unless the team is planning to announce the release of another player (looking at you Donald Washington) it wouldn’t have made sense to sign Ugoh if they were expecting Bowe.
We’ll be keeping an eye on things to see if any more moves are made or if Bowe shows up to camp. We’ve already discussed that it makes almost no sense for Bowe to not come to camp on time.
Let’s hope Bowe sees it that way too.
For now, who is pumped to have the big man in camp?
