Kansas City Chiefs Reportedly Add Wide Receiver Keary Colbert To Roster

[Ed. Note: It's now official from the mother ship. -Matt Conner]

The Kansas City Chiefs have reportedly signed WR Keary Colbert, according to multiple reports on Twitter. Apparently, he's already been given a uniform (No. 84) and started training camp at tonight's practice under the lights.

Coming out of USC in 2004, Colbert was a second round pick by the Carolina Panthers. His best season statistically was by far his 2004 rookie year, when he caught 47 passes for 754 yards and five touchdowns. Since that season though, Colbert has essentially been jumping form team to team.

He's played for the Panthers, Seahawks, Broncos, Lions and a couple of UFL teams, most recently signing with the Sacramento franchise just two months ago. One of the last notes we have on him playing in the NFL comes from Pride of Detroit way back in 2009. Sean Yuille said, "Keary Colbert is headed to the UFL. Based on his play in the preseason, that is probably a better place for him than the NFL."

By my count, Keary Colbert makes the 13th wide receiver on the Kansas City Chiefs 2011 preseason roster and the 85th overall. The Kansas City Chiefs are already fairly deep at wide receiver, at least in the starting ranks. The latest Chiefs depth chart doesn't show much room for another wide receiver to make inroads. I'd put Colbert's chances of making the final 53-man roster at 50/50, at best.
