Canadian Football League star Weston Dressler is officially a Kansas City Chief. We knew already knew this was technically happening, but now we know it is officially happening.
Here is the Twitter evidence:

Jason wrote a little bit about Dressler last week. Below is a bit of what he wrote. You can find the rest of it here.
Dressler could absolutely be the answer to the Chiefs dilemma at the slot receiver and punt returner positions. With Dexter McCluster exepecting to draw a decent amount of interest on the free agent market come March, he may demand a price that’s too high for the Chiefs — hampered by an unforgiving salary cap situation — to pay. But, it may not be the end of the world if Dressler does indeed make Kansas City his home.
Dressler, 28, caught 442 passes for 6,531 yards and 43 touchdowns in six seasons in the CFL. Last year he caught 70 passes for 1,011 yards and nine touchdowns, while averaging 11.1 yards on punt returns. Early speculation is he will be insurance for if Dexter McCluster leaves via free agency.
