The Kansas City Chiefs have announced the signing of third-round draft pick RB Knile Davis. With the deal in place, Davis becomes the third member of the Chiefs’ 2013 NFL Draft class to agree to terms. The Chiefs inked sixth-round draft pick C Eric Kush and seventh-round draft pick DE Mike Catapano last week.
Here’s what Davis had to say about the signing on KCChiefs.com:
It’s something that I always dreamed of, just getting to this point in my life,” Davis said. “It feels good but I know (when) much is given to you, much is required, so, I’m staying humble and am going to take it one day at a time. It’s good to have the contract and have the privileges but there’s a lot required with it.
The Chiefs still have five other draftees to sign: Eric Fisher, Travis Kelce, Nico Johnson, Sanders Commings and Braden Wilson. Kansas City’s rookie minicamp, held over the weekend, provided an opportunity for the team to negotiate with Davis. It’s possible that other rookie signings will be announced in the coming days.
