The Kansas City Chiefs officially signed four new players to reserve/futures contracts on Wednesday. Here’s a closer look at each player.

When a team is beginning to make preparations for the postseason, it’s easy for very minor transactions to go unnoticed. After all, if you’ve likely never even heard of a player and the team is still making transactions on the active roster or announcing injuries, it’s easy to miss the fine print at the bottom of an article (or a blip on the transaction wire).

On Wednesday the Chiefs made four such moves, small blips within the bigger picture, so to speak, as they signed four prospects to reserve/futures contracts. However, as we’re all aware, it’s not uncommon for a team to unearth a hidden gem in this way. For every Eric Berry taken as a sure thing at the top of the first round, there’s a waiver wire claim like Ron Parker starting every game across from him for years.

Because you can never be sure what moves will matter in the end, we thought we’d take a closer look at the players signed by the Chiefs on Wednesday and how they might fit in the future. It’s an interesting bunch, starting with a sort of local product.
