Chiefs Sign Free Agent WR David Grimes

Following their three day rookie mini-camp, the Kansas City Chiesf have signed free agent WR David Grimes.  Grimes participated in the mini-camp on a tryout basis.

Grimes (5-9, 183) played in 45 games (22 starts) at Notre Dame, catching 90 passes for 900 yards with seven TDs.  He also returned 36 kickoffs for 852 yards.  Grimes recorded 35 receptions for 321 yards with three TDs as a senior for the Fighting Irish.  He originally entered the NFL as a rookie free agent with Denver in 2009.  The Los Angeles native was a first-team all-state selection as a senior at St. Martin DePorres High School in Detroit, Michigan.

And Charlie Weis has his first former player to work with!

As we’ve been talking about plenty, it’s a tall task to make an NFL team as an undrafted free agent.  Even though Grimes isn’t officially a rookie thanks to his time spent last offseason with the Broncos, he is starting from the same place as the UDFAs that the Chiefs have already signed.

His one advantage is obviously the connection to Weis.  We saw last year that Todd Haley preferred to work with people he was familiar with (and that were familiar with him) so Grimes has a real chance to stick.
