It’s been a pretty dark day for the Kansas City Chiefs’ practice squad.
Earlier, news broke that the Chiefs let go of practice squad offensive lineman Tommie Draheim. Just hours later, the practice squad’s roster has taken another hit.
On the plus side, the Chiefs made a signing as well, so apparently general manager John Dorsey is still in a wheeling and dealing mood:
Here’s the press release, via Chiefs Communications:
"KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Kansas City Chiefs announced on Tuesday that the club has signed defensive tackle Jordan Miller and terminated the practice squad contract of offensive tackle Matt Reynolds."
Per the release, Miller has been in the league since 2011. He was an undrafted free agent who spent most of his time up in the NFC North. He was on the Bears’ 2011 practice squad and even made it on to the active roster for the playoffs. He spent 2012 with the Packers as both a practice squad and active roster member.
Miller has some good experience both as a member of an active NFL roster and as a practice squad player, so from the outside looking in, this is a nice signing for Kansas City. He checks in at 6’1”, 316 pounds.
Reynolds played on the Philadelphia Eagles’ practice squad last season after being undrafted in 2012.
