New, comments

Chiefs GM John Dorsey continues adding free agents to the team. The latest one signed to a reserve/futures contract is Ryan Durand, an offensive lineman who has spent much of the last four years with the Tennessee Titans.

Per several reports, the Kansas City Chiefs have added offensive lineman Ryan Durand to the team. Durand, a guard, was a 2009 seventh round pick by the Tennessee Titans.

His bio from the Chiefs:

Durand (6-5, 301) originally entered the NFL as a seventh-round draft choice (239th overall) of the Tennessee Titans in the 2009 NFL Draft. He spent his initial season on the Titans practice squad before being elevated to the active roster in 2010. He made his NFL debut and only appearance vs. Dallas on Oct. 10, 2010. He served on Tennessee's practice squad again in 2011. He joined the Miami Dolphins on Nov. 20, 2012 and was released on Nov. 27.

A three-year starter at right guard for Syracuse, Durand was an All-Big East selection his senior season after paving the way for a 1,000-yard rusher. As a junior, he protected an offensive unit that averaged 291.9 yards per game. The Fitchburg, Mass., native, prepped at St. Bernard's Central Catholic High School, where he was a four-year letterman and team captain.

Here's more from the Titans official site.

This is now the fourth free agent signed since John Dorsey came aboard.

1. OL Steven Baker

2. DL Daniel Muir

3. WR Tyler Shoemaker

QB Rudy Carpenter was said to have a workout with the Chiefs last week, but no signing as of yet.

More than likely many of these guys signed to reserve/futures contracts won't make a huge impact on the final 53-man roster.
