The Kansas City Chiefs have signed free agent wide receiver Devin Gray after a workout on Saturday.
Despite having a tough competition at wide receiver for several spots on the active roster already in training camp, the Kansas City Chiefs are adding even more competitors to the mix, On Saturday, they decided to sign wide receiver Devin Gray to a one-year contract after he worked out for the team.
Gray spent two years at the University of Cincinnati before going undrafted in the 2018 NFL Draft. However, he landed a contract with the Atlanta Falcons as a rookie free agent and managed to stick around the organization for the next three years as a member of the practice squad. Despite his longevity with the organization, however, he never earned any playing time on the active roster. He was ultimately released in 2020.
From there, Gray was picked up by the Baltimore Ravens shortly before the 2021 season and stuck on the team’s practice squad but that lasted only a few months. After his contract was up following the season, Gray decided to go the USFL route with the Philadelphia Stars. He had 25 catches for 210 yards in 8 games this spring before trying out for the Chiefs.
Gray comes with some punt return experience and will likely become another name for Dave Toub to evaluate as a potential playmaker for special teams units that were largely wiped clean of four-phase players this offseason. While Toub’s specialists remain the same, he has a lot of work to do to replace so many vets and Gray at least comes with several years of competing in these roles.
