According to a report, K-State DE Jeffrey Fitzgerald will be joining the Chiefs this weekend at the club's rookie minicamp. The report indicates he signed a free agent contract - but that can not be confirmed. It could just be a tryout.
Fitzgerald visited the Bears and Eagles leading up to the draft but wasn't selected. He stands 6'4" and 270 pounds and had a solid senior season with 40 tackles and seven sacks.
The Chiefs have some familiarity with him. He played in the East-West shrine game with Romeo Crennel, according to a Scout.com profile.
At Kansas State's Pro Day on March 3rd, Fitzgerald showcased his athleticism and strength to NFL scouts in attendance by running a 4.83 in the 40, generating a 35-inch vertical and benching 225 pounds 21 times.
Anyone ever seen him play?
