Chiefs Free Agency: Team Confirms Some Deals *Update

Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

The Kansas City Chiefs have been very busy since NFL free agency started yesterday afternoon and now they are confirming the deals we’ve been hearing.

The team announced the deals over Twitter:

The surprise name there is Bryan Mattison. Mattison has been on and off the Chiefs roster while Scott Pioli was the team’s GM. KC signed Mattison in September of 2012, then cut him and then signed him again in October.

Mattison entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the New York Jets in 2008, after playing his college ball at Iowa.

Mattison actually played DE in college but in 2009, he landed with the Baltimore Ravens. There, he shifted guard. He was waived on Nov. 24, 2011. The following day, he was picked up by the St. Louis Rams.

Mattison has never really been able to catch on with a team or force his way into the lineup but there must be some reason he keeps hanging around. It looks like the new regime will give him another chance to earn a roster spot in training camp.

As for the other moves, we knew those were coming and now they are confirmed.

Congrats to the new Chiefs.

UPDATE: DeVito is confirmed as well.

    So are we gonn land a big fish? All of these signings are good but not headliners! Bring us an explosive guy

  • Daniel Mayfield

    From the way it looks to me, KC is working on “rebuilding”. QB Daniels might be good for a starter since he was…I guess you can say, learning while he was a backup for Drew. They got a TE that was in the top 10 for NFL Network Show. Picked up WR Avery, he was 2nd or 3rd best on that show. When I saw his name was gone I got on here to check it out.

    Not bad with the D players. I’d like to see CB Sean Smith but they can train Robinson. So far, no big Legends but there’s some good players there.

    Good enough to START rebuilding. I won’t put out any names on who don’t, or didn’t, believe they would be able to do it. We’ll just have to wait and see where the team goes. Maybe not hitting the playoffs next year but a winning season will show improvement

    I would really like to see KC add Larry Grant. He really wants a chance to start and would start day one over Silver.

  • Auburn78

    Siler sorry.

  • Irebigjohn

    I hate to say it but revis would be awesome to add to the D. But his price needs to still be negotiated. He wants way too much!!

  • Jim Harper

    I loved DeVito on Taxi!

    • Darkwolf1414

      Yeah, I was psyched we got DeVito. I was watching Twins, when I read it last night.
