KC Chiefs Bring Back A Familiar Name

The Kansas City Chiefs announced (while I was sleeping last night) that they're bringing back a familiar face -- WR Zeke Markshausen, who signed with the team this week. He was picked up by the Chiefs in training camp last year and had a brief practice squad stint last season.

Markshausen is 5'11" and comes from Northwestern where he played in 27 games catching 92 balls for 864 yards and three touchdowns. 91 of those receptions came in his senior season alone, which puts him second in Northwestern history.

Markshausen went to training camp with the Chicago Bears in 2010 and didn't play in the league again until 2011 training camp with the Chiefs. KC signed him to their practice squad at the end of November, but he only stuck on the team for a week.

The Chiefs will keep signing players leading up to training camp. They can have 80 guys under contract for camp and currently stand at just over 50 under contract. Lots of signings to go.
