The Kansas City Chiefs have signed free agent WR Tyler Shoemaker, the team’s official site reported today.
Shoemaker originally entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2012, before the team released him prior to training camp.
The 6’1, 213 lb wideout was a four-year letterman at Boise State (2008-11), after redshirting his freshman season (2007).
He played in 50 games (23 starts), totaled 122 receptions for 2,031 yards (16.6 avg.) with 25 touchdowns.
As a senior, Shoemaker led the Broncos with 994 receiving yards and 16 touchdowns and tied for a team-high 62 receptions.
The Chiefs are already adding camp bodies which is great. There is no reason to wait for free agency to start to add some potential talent. Especially WR talent.
