Here's a snippet about him we highlighted back in April 2011:
A star high school quarterback and safety coming out of Oakboro, N.C., Sturdivant chose jersey No. 52 when he moved to linebacker for the Tar Heels in honor of his favorite players -- former Hurricanes Ray Lewis and Jon Beason. He sports a tattoo that says, "Only the strong survive" and plays linebacker with that mindset. Sturdivant is a tackling machine who attacks the line of scrimmage with speed and great instincts. He moved inside as a junior, where his limitations tackling in the open field and sticking with tight ends in coverage can be masked better.
The Chiefs recently released linebacker Bryan Kehl.
Update: The Chiefs released K Matt Szymanski to make room for Sturdivant. Szymanski was signed to the practice squad last week.
