The Kansas City Chiefs have a lot of work to do this offseason and part of that will be signing players to reserve/future contracts. Usually those on the practice squad will get those deals, but one of them won’t be OT David Mims.
The massive (6-8, 335) second-year player inked a reserve/future contract with the Baltimore Ravens after spending all season on the Chiefs practice squad. Mims was promoted to the 53-man roster last last season after catching on as an undrafted free agent out of Virginia Union and landing on the practice squad.
Mims isn’t eligible to be active for the Ravens postseason run, but will be on the roster when their offseason program kicks off.
It’s a loss for a Kansas City team that could be looking at an offensive line without free agent Branden Albert. Mims is still raw, but showed a lot of promise and, after all, you can’t teach 6-8!
