The new guy, Brock, went undrafted in 2009 NFL Draft. Since then he has been with seven teams including the Carolina Panthers, New York Jets, Pittsburgh Steelers, Dallas Cowboys, Buffalo Bills, Chicago Bears and Oakland Raiders. Just 26 years old, Brock has quite the mileage on his resume already.

Here's a little more on Brock from back in 2009 when he was coming out of the draft:

Brock came to Rutgers as a walk-on and developed into a two-year starter at tight end. In 42 career games, Brock caught 49 passes for 541 yards and four touchdowns. As a senior, he put up the best numbers of his career with 26 receptions for 300 yards and two touchdowns. Brock's most memorable moment as a Scarlet Knight might have been his 15-yard touchdown reception from holder Andrew DePaola (Hereford, Md.) on a fake field goal attempt in Rutgers' 30-27 victory over No. 2 USF in 2007.

The Chiefs tight end position figures to be an interesting one this year. Tony Moeaki and Kevin Boss are the leading candidates for the job at the moment.
