The Kansas City Chiefs have signed running back Kestahn Moore to take the roster spot of DT Kenny Smith the practice squad.
Moore was an undrafted free agent out of Florida that initially signed with the Denver Broncos, but was waived before training camp.
He then made his second stop in the AFC West when he signed with the San Diego Chargers, but didn’t make the final roster.
During his four years at Florida, Moore was never the feature back but averaged over 5 yards per carry for his career.
Very solid pickup for the Chiefs as a 53rd man developmental prospect. I’ve watched a ton of Florida football and trust me when I tell you Moore is everything Scott Pioli and Todd Haley say they are looking for. He can play either running back position, is a great blocker and is smart.
If he would have run a better 40 at his pro day (4.5) I think he would have jumped into the 5th or 6th round. There were times on the field Moore looked like he could reel off times in the mid 4.4s, which would have made him one of the fastest running backs in the draft.
With Javarris Williams and Tim Castille the only running backs sitting behind Jamaal Charles, Moore could actually get on the field this Sunday if they promote him to the 53-man roster.
