The Kansas City Chiefs are beginning their rookie camp on Saturday, and they are coming into the proceedings with 13 more players locked up.
General manager John Dorsey signed second-round pick Chris Jones earlier in the week, and on Friday agreed to terms with guard Parker Ehinger, wide receiver Demarcus Robinson, quarterback Keivn Hogan, cornerback D.J. White and outside linebacker Dadi Nicolas.
Kansas City also signed seven undrafted free agents, including corners Vernon Harris, Shak Randolph and Tre Jones (Dartmouth, SMU, Mount Union), guard Jake Bernstein (Vanderbilt), receiver Mitch Mathews (BYU), linebacker Terrance Smith (Florida State) and center Ben Clarke (Hawaii).
At this juncture, the only draft picks not signed are corners KeiVarae Russell and Eric Murray, although both are expected to be in attendance for the rookie camp, that will last through Monday afternoon.
Hopefully the Chiefs can find some keepers in this rookie class. The team doesn’t need a whole heck of a lot more to reach the Super Bowl for the first time since 1969, but one or two gems could make all the difference in beating a team like the New England Patriots.
Kansas City will likely cut some players after rookie camp and perhaps sign a few more, and we will keep you updated on all the happenings.
