Martin Rucker Says He's A Chief

Martin Rucker | US Presswire

A few hours ago, someone tweeted me and said that former Mizzou TE Martin Rucker agreed to a deal with the Kansas City Chiefs. Absent any confirmation, I couldn't post it on the site.

But we now have a little more confirmation. Rucker himself tweeted that he is now a Chief.

Thanking God 4 another opportunity 2 pursue my dream. Thank u all 4 ur prayers and support. I'm a Kansas City Chief!! Good 2 b home!!

He was in KC last weekend for the rookie minicamp but only on a tryout basis. His tweet makes it sound like he got an actual contract from the Chiefs (presumably a one-year deal). We'll wait for it to become officially official when the Chiefs announce the signing.

Rucker was originally the Browns 2008 fourth round draft pick, the same year the team was headed by Romeo Crennel.

The Chiefs have shown quite a bit of interest in tight ends this offseason. Kevin Boss was inked to a deal and the Chiefs also worked out Dallas Clark.
