Kansas City Chiefs Pick Up CB Rashad Barksdale

New, comments

We'll see if this guy ends up on the team. He was just released by the Eagles.

Barksdale (5-11, 208) originally entered the NFL as a sixth-round draft pick (201st overall) of Philadelphia in 2007. He began his collegiate career at Hudson Valley Community College in Troy, New York before transferring to Albany as a junior baseball player. He joined the Great Danes football team as a running back before shifting to safety. He opened 10 games as a senior at Albany, recording 37 tackles and three INTs to earn Mid-Major All-America honors from Football Gazette. The Hudson, New York native was an all-state performer in both baseball and football at Hudson High School.
Bleeding Green Nation described Barksdale as a project when he was drafted back in April. The dust has yet to settle on the Chiefs 53 man roster. I'm sure there are more moves to come.
