The Kansas City Chiefs had a busy Monday, shuffling the roster before after their rookie minicamp and before they kick off their OTA Tuesday. The team signed six tryout players from the minicamp, while parting with three that had been under contract.
Head coach Andy Reid and GM John Dorsey welcomed DT Risean Broussard, DB Greg Castillo, DT Miguel Chavis, DB Justin Glenn, RB Jordan Roberts and DB James Rogers to the roster.
Of the group, Broussard seems to be the most intriguing. The former high school dropout ended up playing just one season of football at the JUCO level. But in that one season the Lake Charles, Louisiana native had 61 tackles and six sacks in just eight games. Though he’s a project, even by undrafted free agent standards, he is worth watching during OTAs.
In addition to adding six player, the Chiefs also released three, with Eachus the most recognizable name. After coming to Kansas City as an undrafted free agent out of Colgate, Eachus fought his way onto the field and into the starting lineup. The fullback appeared in 11 games, including two starts, picking up 18 yards on five carries and caught one pass for 19 yards.
The Chiefs added two fullbacks — Braden Wilson and Anthony Sherman — leaving little room for Eachus.
