Kansas City Chiefs sign a new player

Jonathan Daniel

The Kansas City Chiefs signed a new player on Thursday -- fullback Ryan D'Imperio.

It's not a trade for Alex Smith or a Sean Smith signing but it's Kansas City Chiefs news alright. The Chiefs announced on Thursday that they've signed fullback Ryan D'Imperio. We don't know much about him but here's his bio from the Chiefs:

D'Imperio (6-3, 240) has played in 12 games (one start) in two NFL seasons with the Minnesota Vikings (2010-11). After spending the 2010 season on the club's practice squad, D'Imperio was promoted to the active roster in October of 2011, recording two catches for seven yards. He was released by the Vikings before the 2012 season.

The Sewell, N.J., native originally entered the NFL as a seventh-round draft choice (237th overall) of the Vikings in the 2010 NFL Draft. D'Imperio played linebacker at Rutgers, recording 185 tackles, 7.0 sacks (-55.0 yards), two interceptions, six passes defensed, one forced fumble and three fumble recoveries. He prepped at Washington Township High School in Sewell, N.J.

He joins Patrick DiMarco on the KC Chiefs fullback depth chart.

This could be a fullback battle the likes of which we haven't seen since the days of Boomer Grigsby.
