Chiefs Sign Former Cardinals Receiver

New, comments

While I was sleeping, the third shift on AP caught wind of a new receiver coming to town -- Jerheme Urban.

Urban, 29, is coming most recently from the Arizona Cardinals, where he played under Todd Haley for two seasons. He had his two best seasons of his career under Haley.

He was originally an undrafted free agent for the Seahawks and apparently left an impression, according to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer (via Wiki):

Urban is considered by many to be the ultimate team player. Seattle Post-Intelligencer sportswriter Jim Miller wrote of Urban's tenure with the Seahawks that he "...wasn't a good soldier, he was a great one." Quarterback Matt Hasselbeck said of Urban, "Whatever the definition of a Seahawk is, he's it."    

He moved onto the Cowboys practice squad in 2006 and was cut before the 2007 season when he then signed with the Cards.

He is 6'3", 212 pounds and comes from Trinity University in Texas.
