Kansas City Chiefs tryout player earns a contract

New, comments

Justin Glenn tried out for the Chiefs last weekend and he now reports via his Twitter account that he's agreed to a deal with the Chiefs.

Andy Reid stayed true to his word. The KC Chiefs head coach was asked if the Chiefs would be signing any of the tryout players in attendance at last weekend's rookie minicamp, and he said that they probably would. It appears that the first one has signed.

Justin Glenn is a former University of Washington defensive back who was among the 36 tryout players at the Chiefs three-day rookie minicamp. If his Twitter account is to be believed, he's a new Chief. The Chiefs signed 13 other undrafted free agents, so Glenn's signing makes him the 14th since the end of the 2013 NFL Draft.

Glenn is a 5'10, 210-pound safety who went undrafted in April.

It's not clear at this point which other tryout players (if any) could be signed. This week is the start of OTAs, which will include the Chiefs veteran players.
