The Kansas City Chiefs made their splash in free agency with RB Peyton Hillis and OT Eric Winston, but have been awfully quiet since. The latest player in their building, Cincinnati Bengals RFA LB Dan Skuta, isn’t likely to cause many waves but would be a solid addition.
The Flint, Michigan native won’t come in and push for a starting role, but would add much needed depth and toughness on special teams.
In three years since joining the Bengals as an undrafted free agent, Skuta has played in 40 games, including four starts. Three of those came last season, a stretch in which he averaged four tackles a game.
If the Chiefs offer Skuta a contract, Cincinnati will have the right to match it, however Kansas City will not need to send compensation to the Bengals decline to match.
Skuta was a teammate of former Chiefs CB Brandon Carr at tiny Grand Valley State. During his time at GVSU, his 33.5 sacks ranked third in NCAA Division II history.
