Chiefs Add Free Agent Cornerback

It didn’t take the Kansas City Chiefs long to fill the open roster spot created by the release of WR Mardy Gilyard. That spot will be taken by CB Conroy Black.ConroyBlack

Black was an undrafted free agent out of Utah last year, but had stints with the Oakland Raiders and Detroit Lions. He didn’t appear in a game last year and will join a crowded, but unsettled, secondary in Kansas City.

With fifth-round pick Sanders Commings out for the immediate future with a fractured clavicle, there is a chance for someone to come out of nowhere and grab a roster spot in the defensive backfield.

If Black can show some versatility and get snaps at safety or use his blazing speed (4.35 40-yard dash) in the return game, he might be able to jump over a handful of players that have been in the program throughout OTAs.
