The Kansas City Chiefs had three open roster spots when they kicked off their OTAs on Monday with all but one of their players in attendance. Now they have one less roster spot after coming to terms with free agent wide receiver Aaron Weaver.
Weaver started his college career at Hofstra before being forced to transfer in 2010 when the school eliminated its football program. That’s when the 6’2″, 220 pound receiver decided to play at Syracuse, but his time there was short lived despite quickly working his way into the rotation at wide receiver.
After just two games with the Orange, Weaver tore his ACL in practice and missed the rest of his senior season. He applied for a medical hardship waiver to play another season but was denied by the NCAA.
Before suffering the season-ending injury, Weaver caught six passes for 88 yards and a touchdown.
With Weaver on the roster, the Chiefs roster now sits at 88 including the franchise — but still unsigned — Dwayne Bowe. GM Scott Pioli can sign two more players without making a cut before training camp opens up.
