Chiefs Met With Restricted Free Agent Dan Skuta


According to Bob Gretz of, the Kansas City Chiefs met with Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Dan Skuta recently.

Skuta is a restricted free agent, meaning the Bengals hold his rights. Should the Chiefs sign Skuta to an offer sheet, the Bengals would have seven days to match the offer to retain his rights. Since Skuta was not tendered at a draft pick level, the Chiefs wouldn’t have to give anything up to Cincinnati if the Bengals decided not to match KC’s offer.

Skuta looks like a reserve MLB/special teamer. He generally played only a handful of snaps a game, but he did make a big impact on special teams. According to Pro Football Focus, Skura appeared on special teams in nine games in 2011 and recorded nine tackles. On defense he played 170 snaps last season recording 15 tackles. PFF graded him at +2.5 on the season.
