As reported earlier this week here, the Kansas City Chiefs have signed former North Dakota and CFL standout receiver Weston Dressler. Today, the details of his contract have been released. Adam Teicher from ESPN sent out the details in his twitter feed.
New #Chiefs WR Weston Dressler’s contract is for 3 years and the minimum each year ($420,000 in 14, $510,000 in 15 and $600,000 in 16).

This contract is actually really good for the Chiefs. If Dexter McCluster does leave in free agency – as many think he will because the Chiefs won’t be able to afford him – it appears that Dressler will be a very inexpensive alternative.
In watching the tape on Dressler – what little of it I’ve been able to find – he’s very sure-handed and seems to run good routes, being able to find the open part of the field. I’m very curious to see how head coach Andy Reid and the Chiefs will use him their offense. If he can continue to get open in Kansas City like he was able to in Saskatchewan, the move south could prove to be a very good move indeed. He’s just got to get used to a shorter field and smaller end zone.
