The Kansas City Chiefs announced the signings of six more players on Wednesday morning, including two draft picks. The players signed included 2012 draft picks OL Jeff Allen (2nd round) and CB DeQuan Menzie (5th round) as well as tryout players TE Martin Rucker, LB Leon Williams and DB Dominique Ellis. Free agent OL Rich Ranglin was also signed.
Allen and Menzie are the fifth and sixth draft picks to sign. This leaves just 1st round pick DT Dontari Poe and 3rd round pick OT Donald Stephenson left to sign. The other draft picks that have signed include 4th round pick WR Devon Wylie, 6th round pick RB Cyrus Gray and 7th round picks DT Jerome Long and WR Junior Hemingway.
Rucker and Williams have both been with Romeo Crennel in the past. Ellis was one of 10 Chiefs tryout players at the rookie minicamp last weekend. He's a safety out of South Carolina State.
Ranglin played for the KC Command, the AFL's franchise in Kansas City. He was the AFL offensive lineman of the year last year. He's 6'3" and weighs 215 pounds.
As Josh Looney points out, the Chiefs roster now stands at 87 players. The maximum is 90 and the Chiefs will need those three remaining spots for the two unsigned draft picks and WR Dwayne Bowe, who has been franchise tagged.
