Kansas City Chiefs Sign Defensive Lineman, Cut Van Dyke And Baker

A few days before the start of the preseason the Chiefs has signed a player and cut two others.

Jarius Campbell, an undrafted free agent, is a 6-5, 300 pound defensive linemen from Bowling Green University. In 13 games last season he totaled 33 tackles. He was also a tryout player at the Chiefs rookie minicamp in May.

Fullback James Baker is casualty number one of the preseason. Kansas City seems pretty set with Anthony Sherman at fullback so there really was no other reason to have too many people at that position when there are other areas of the team to work on in terms of depth.

David Van Dyke, a cornerback, was also let go. There was some thought Van Dyke could compete for a roster spot but his inability to stay on the field due to a hamstring injury has led to the Chiefs letting him walk.

Kansas City is now at 89 players on the roster which means they could pick up one more player between now and the first cut in mid-August.
