While the bulk of available free agents have found a new home for the 2021 season —at least those who will find a home—some solid players remain available on the open market, including some former members of the K.C. Chiefs. One such player is center Austin Reiter, who has been busy visiting a few teams in the last week.
As training camps have opened, teams have finally come around with serious interest for Reiter, who manned the starting center role along the Chiefs offensive front for the last two seasons. The latest stop for Reiter’s free agent tour, per ESPN reporter Jeremy Fowler, will come with the New York Giants.
Reiter has been busy lately in his tour around the U.S. His first known visit a week ago was with the Cincinnati Bengals. From there, he spent time with the Houston Texans, and now he’s heading north to hang with Joe Judge’s team.
Austin Reiter will visit his third team in a week as a free agent.
There was a reason why the Chiefs decided to upgrade the position after watching Reiter reach his pro ceiling in front of Patrick Mahomes. That said, Reiter is a capable starter for a team in need of interior help. He also comes with serious postseason experience and a Super Bowl ring from his three-year tenure with the Chiefs.
Reiter joined the Chiefs as a preseason waiver claim before the 2018 season and earned a two-year extension by season’s end. From there, he climbed the depth chart and became the team’s next starter after losing Mitch Morse in free agency.
Reiter is 29-years-old and has 33 starts in 59 total games played across five NFL seasons.
