The Kansas City Chiefs have signed undrafted free agent DL Harold Ayodele from Emporia State.
Even though the team is only in St. Joe for a few more days, they were still two short of the roster limit of 90. With the signing of Ayodele, the roster sits at 89 and while they should be done adding pieces before the first round of cuts, clearly they are still looking for players they feel can help.
Will Ayodele be able to help? Well, I’d be lying if I said I saw any Emporia State games this season, but anyone that is 6-foot-1 and nearly 340 pounds has a chance. It’s just hard to believe any player — and especially an undrafted rookie — can catch on this late in the process and show enough to stick on the 53-man roster.
Before his time at Emporia State, Ayodele played at Tennessee State with former Chiefs 7th round pick Javarris Williams.
