The Kansas City Chiefs had an open spot on their practice squad after promoting offensive lineman Rich Ranglin over the weekend. They filled that spot Wednesday when they signed K Matt Szymanski.
The former Texas A&M and SMU kicker spent training camp with the Chiefs, before being part of the cut down to 75 players. He kicked and punted during his time in Kansas City, so I guess he can give the Chiefs a guy that can fill in for both specialists during practice.
It’s not worth getting worked up over the final spot on a teams practice squad, but it does seem like a bit of a waste. Both Succop and Colquitt are locked into their positions and it’s hard to believe that if one was to get hurt that they couldn’t sign Szymanski off the street.
The Chiefs have done a lot of shuffling with the practice squad, so there’s no guarantee Szymanski will stick around for too long.
