KC Chiefs host free agent WR / KR Micheal Spurlock

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

Visiting Kansas City this week was free agent WR and KR Micheal Spurlock, who has been in the league since 2006.

The Kansas City Chiefs visited with a free agent this week: Micheal Spurlock. This according to Aaron Wilson of National Football Post.

Spurlock is a receiver and special teamer specializing in kick and punt returns. Spurlock, 31, has played for seven teams since entering the league in 2006 as an undrafted free agent out of Ole Miss. Spurlock, listed at 5'10 and 214 pounds, has 107 career punt returns and 67 punt returns to just 46 career receptions. So it's obvious where he helps out -- punt and kick returns.

The Chiefs lost their top kick returner (Quintin Demps) and punt returner (Dexter McCluster) this offseason. While there could be players on the roster already (Knile DavisJoe McKnightWeston Dressler) who could perform those roles, the Chiefs are keeping a lookout for potential experience in that area. Makes sense to me with 90 roster spots available this offseason. May as well get a look at everyone.

After the first year of Chiefs special teams coach Dave Toub, I'll trust his opinion on what goes for the Chiefs special teams.

In free agency, a visit doesn't necessarily mean anything. Could mean the team wants to take a look at him medically (perhaps the case with WR Joe Morgan, who recently re-signed with the Saints) or because they know they want to sign him or just to see if he's in shape.

Spurlock played for the Lions and Cowboys last season, which included punt returns of 62 and 57 yards. Before that was the Jaguars and Chargers. He entered the league with the Cardinals and played for the Bucs and 49ers early in his career.
