Chiefs Sign Buddy Jackson And Matt Reynolds


The Kansas City Chiefs are still busy shaping their roster.

The team has added former New York Giants DB Buddy Jackson and former Philadelphia Eagles OT Matt Reynolds. Both players were acquired off of the waiver wire. Since the Chiefs had the worst record in the NFL in 2012, the team gets first crack at any released players that must clear waivers.

Jackson was an undrafted free agent out of Pittsburgh. He was signed by the Indianapolis Colts and then landed on the Washington Redskins practice squad. He appears to be a raw prospect with heaps of athletic ability. Unfortunately, being strong and fast doesn’t always mean a guy will be a good football player. Check out this tape of his Pro Day.

Reynolds will turn 27 at the end of the month. He played college ball at Bringham Young and went undrafted in 2012.

Neither of these moves seem to be particularly significant. It seems that Andy Reid and John Dorsey are trying to bring in as many of their own guys as possible to fill out the bottom of the roster and to create competition. The Chiefs will likely continue to churn the bottom of the roster guys until they hit training camp.

The Chiefs also cut CB DeQuan Menzie earlier today. It will be interesting to see if any more Scott Pioli draft picks get cut before camp. Reid and Dorsey have kept most of the core Chiefs in place but bubble players from the previous room could be in danger as the new-look Chiefs move forward.

    I like it that we have first crack at the waver wire who knows what we might find. We sure will some chances to build the roster, just think when teams have to get down to the 53 man limit we might just get some gems, considering with some teams like SFand other teams that have stacked rosters. We will see, of course we will have to have some cap space that is why I hope they can sign Albert and free up some cap money, also it would be nice if they could restructure Tamba’s deal that could really give us some good play money.

      We too are only allowed the 53, we will have all the money we need to pay them, after all we are currently paying more than 53 right now.

        We are way over the cap limit the amount that they say is our cap number is a figured amount. I may be wrong after the arenas trade. But the cap doesn’t go into effect til we get to our 53 man roster.

        • ArrowFan

          and it is only the top guys on your roster that count to the cap, the bottom feeders don’t count. So we can pick up as many guys as we want to shuffle around on the bottom side of our roster.
