Chiefs Sign Former Green Bay Packer Tommie Draheim


According to Aaron Wilson, the Kansas City Chiefs have signed former Green Bay Packers offensive lineman Tommie Draheim .

From Wilson, via Twitter:

Draheim played tackle at San Diego State. He was signed by the Packers as an undrafted free agent in 2012 but he failed to make the team. Since then he has spent time with the Seattle Seahawks and on the practice squads of the New England Patriots and Jacksonville Jaguars.

Despite playing tackle in college, Tommie Draheim has been a center in the NFL. He seems to be a fringe prospect that a lot of teams like but he hasn’t good enough to stick on a roster or practice squad yet.

It looks like he’ll get a chance to go to camp with the Chiefs. KC could certainly use some depth at center so here’s hoping that Draheim is a diamond in the rough.

KC released offensive lineman Rich Ranglin yesterday. We now know they likely did that to make room for Draheim.

What do you think, Addicts? Are any of you familiar with this guy?

    They need depth at center. I’d prefer they get it in the 3rd round of the draft, Travis Frederick or Barrett Jones if they’re available.

      Still can

        Didn’t really mean it as an either/or statement. I look at the o line as our biggest need now with ILB being #2. So yes, FA and the draft. Both is better.

    Yes I’m familiar with him. He’s actually my third cousin and when he comes to dinner we never get any food. He will probably go pro at professional eating when he’s NFL career is over.
