Chiefs Sign One Player On First Day Of Free Agency

The Chiefs signed one player for their first (and only) move on day one of free agency.

Who is the player? Drum roll, please.....


RB Jackie Battle!

I know, I know. Not that exciting.

Battle was an exclusive rights free agent which basically meant he had an expiring contract and two or less years of service.

Battle is actually very athletic running the 40-yard dash in the 4.4 range with a 240 pound frame.

However, that hasn't translated to the field. During training camp and pre-season, some folks were wondering if Battle was passing Jamaal Charles on the depth chart but that of course was short-lived.

Battle will enter training camp and should be battling (pun intended) with RB Javarris Williams for a roster spot.

Of course, now that I've written a headline that says the Chiefs have signed one player on day one of free agency they'll sign six more tonight and make me look like a dummy.
