Chiefs Sign WR Tyler Shoemaker

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

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.

Highlight time:

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.

    We need all the WRs we can get. But would rather hear our Chiefs have signed their free agents, Bowe, Albert, and Colquit in particular The last two have gone public about wanting to stay in KC. Not so sure about Bowe but we need him more than he apparently needs us.

    • Daniel Mayfield

      He has said it. It’s been a while…can’t remember when but he did say it. Though he might have changed his mind or will change it if they don’t get a new QB.

      They keep signing all these FAs, but they should sign the great players we might be losing. Bowe is the only WR we need to sign. We’ve got 5 or 6 others. Bowe is the best out of all of them

      • tm1946

        If you figure Bowe got 1000 yds with Cassel and Quinn throwing in his direction, he must has some skills.

        As for the 5-6 other Wrs on the roster, using the term WR with their names is more than a fudge of terms. They could not catch a cold much less a football, and separation is something they, as a group, figure is sorting their laundry

      After Bowe finally signed his Franchise Tag contract, last year, he said he definitely wanted to stay in KC for the long term. I have a feeling that Pioli was low balling him big time figuring Bowe could be replaced by Baldwin. All I heard all off-season was how Baldwin was burning Stanford Routt on a regular basis and that Bowe was expendable. We saw how both the Routt and Baldwin situations played out during the season. Reid and Dorsey need to pay Bowe and hope Baldwin can find a way to compete once the regular season starts.

        As I may have said for the upteen time, Haley, a WR/offense guy, gave up on Baldwin. He has good hands, can out jump the cow who jumped over the moon but he has no NFL speed, a loper, no quickness for separation, slow CBs can run with him, and has no clue nor any interest in running a pattern. Bust, is right beside his pic unless he becomes a slot/ end zone toss it up and let him outjump the coverage. i repeated what I heard before Haley left and nothing seems to have changed.

  • Adrian Morales

    We need to start adding quality playrrs to the 2ndry as well i think more than any other position besides the obvious 1

    Neato!

  • obrien5

    What about Wes Welker? If the patriots don’t resign him do we make a move?i think we should.

    • Brody Hall

      I think we go after Wallace first

  • ArrowFan

    Seems like he was very good back in school.

  • Stacy D. Smith

    Interesting signing. The kid was super productive in college. He’s got a great combination of size and speed. 6 foot+, 210+, and runs a 40 in the mid-4.4 range. Hopefully he shows something in OTA’s and gets a chance to go to St. Joe.

  • BoiseChiefPotato

    I have watched every game he has played since I live by Bronco Stadium. He is a great YAC receiver. He had a knack for showing up on big drives and had great hands. I never really understood why he wasn’t a late draft pick.

    I am a big Boise State fan, and I watched all of Tyler’s games. He had great hands and made big plays.
