Robert McCray, Tejan Koroma land rookie deals with Kansas City Chiefs
By Matt Conner
The Kansas City Chiefs have signed two more players to rookie free agent deals in former Indiana pass rusher Robert McCray and BYU center Tejan Koroma.
After inviting dozens of players to come and compete in rookie minicamp, the Kansas City Chiefs have been inspired enough by what they saw in a few player to sign them to official contracts.
The first player to earn such a deal was Villanova cornerback Malik Reaves, a former teammate of last year’s second round pick Tanoh Kpassagnon. Reaves reportedly had eight teams interested in bringing him in to minicamp and he chose the Chiefs. It looks like he made the right move.
The latest two to sign with the Chiefs are defensive end Robert McCray from Indiana and center Tejan Koroma from Brigham Young.
McCray was a very athletic end for the Hoosiers who was often the only real pass rushing option on his team against bigger foes in the Big Ten. He had 6 sacks last season and 1 forced fumble to go with his 20 total tackles on the line. At 6’2, 280 lbs., McCray ran the 40-yard dash at his pro day in 4.65 seconds (same as Bradley Chubb).
Koroma, 6’0, 290 lbs., was a four-year starter at center for BYU and was named to the Outland and Rimington Trophy watch lists before the season began. Pro Football Focus also named Koroma as a second team All-American. With 50 games of starting experience at the college level, he should be able to step right in and look the part in training camp.
