Chiefs Sign Five From Practice Squad

After their final team meeting of the season, the Kansas City Chiefs signed five reserve/future free agents from their practice squad.

Signing were CB Jackie Bates, DE Bobby Greenwood, RB Kestahn Moore, OL Jermail Porter and WR Chandler Williams.  Both Bates and Greenwood joined the team during the 2009 offseason as rookie free agents and attended training camp with the Chiefs in 2009.  Both players also spent the entire 17-week NFL season Kansas City’s development team.

Moore and Porter are both rookies who joined the Chiefs practice squad mid-season, while Williams is a first-year player that came to Kansas City’s practice squad on December 23rd.

WR Logan Payne is the only player who finished the season on Kansas City’s practice squad that remains unsigned.  Typically the Chiefs have all eight practice squad slots occupied during the season, but DT Derek Lokey and S Ricky Price were promoted from the practice squad on December 26th when LB Justin Rogers and S DaJuan Morgan landed on injured reserve.  Kansas City didn’t fill those two remaining slots for the final week of the season.

Of the five, I’m most interested in seeing how Moore responds to Haley’s demanding OTAs and hopefully training camp.  He showed flashes during his time at Florida that make me think he could be a solid contributor for this team next season on special teams and the occasional carry in place of Jamaal Charles.
