The Chiefs practice squad features quarterbacks Jordan Ta’amu and Matt Moore among others.
The Kansas City Chiefs have formed their initial practice squad as they prepare for the 2020 regular season, and both quarterbacks Matt Moore and Jordan Ta’amu are present on the 16 allowed slots.
Moore was a veteran quarterback signed last year when both Patrick Mahomes and Chad Henne went down with injury. He went from a street free agent to starting two games for the Chiefs at midseason, and he performed admirably in Andy Reid‘s offense. Ta’amu was a young signing who beat out any other competitors for the role of developmental quarterback on the Chiefs offseason roster. Ta’amu looked good as a starter in the short-lived XFL in the early spring.
Here’s a look at the rest of the practice squad as of press time. We will keep updating as needed so check back for further moves or additions.
DB Rodney Clemons
Clemons joined the Chiefs as an UDFA this spring after a nice career with SMU. A versatile defensive back, Clemons played in 50 games and had 27 passes defended and 7 interceptions for the Mustangs.
LB Omari Cobb
The 6’4, 223 linebacker was a playmaker behind the line of scrimmage for Marshall over the last four years. He had at least 7.5 tackles for loss in each of the last three seasons and finished his college career with 12.5 sacks.
