The Kansas City Chiefs’ season ended less than a week ago and the front office, led by general manager John Dorsey has wasted no time in building the offseason roster. The Chiefs anounced they have signed 12 players to reserve/future contracts for the offseason. Those players are:
Ridge Wilson – LB, Fred Williams – WR, Kevin Rutland – DB, Rashad Ross – WR, Eric Kettani – FB, Vernon Kearney – DB, Jerrell Jackson – WR, Demetrius Harris – TE, Frankie Hammond Jr. – WR, Chandler Burden – T, Malcolm Bronson – DB and Chas Alecxih – DT.
While some of these names are completely foreign to most Chiefs fans, some of them are familiar. Harris was the standout Wisconsin basketball star who Dorsey brought into training camp this past offseason to try out at tight end. Hammond, Wilson and Williams all spent time with the Chiefs during last offseason and preseason.
Dorsey has already proven that he will be a GM that won’t rest on making this roster better. He’s continually combing the field of available athletes for talent and has already shown that he can uncover that diamond in the rough — think Sean McGrath, Marcus Cooper and Ron Parker. As the offseason approaches the preseason, I would look for some of these names to be players who might make a difference next season.
