Chiefs Sign Former Mizzou And Jaguars DT Atiyyah Ellison

New, comments

The Kansas City Chiefs have filled the roster spot created by the trade of DE Alex Magee to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Chiefs announced on Wednesday DT Atiyyah Ellison is the newest Chief. Kansas Citians likely recognize the name as the former Mizzou Tigers tackle.

Ellison also coincidentally (or not) played for the Jacksonville Jaguars after the Carolina Panthers made him a third round pick in 2005. He's also played for the Houston Texans, Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers so it appears there's some 3-4 experience in there.

It's interesting that the Chiefs sign a former Jaguar just days before the Chiefs face the Jaguars. Todd Haley has previously said that they'll definitely talk to Chiefs players that have played for or are familiar with the upcoming opponent.

Ellison is last listed as 6'3" and 315 pounds.
