Falcons sign former Chiefs FB Patrick DiMarco

New, comments

The Chiefs former starter became expendable after recent additions to the roster.

Denny Medley-US PRESSWIRE

The Atlanta Falcons announced today that they have signed free agent fullback Patrick DiMarco, formerly of the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Chiefs added DiMarco last year as a free agent early in training camp, and the former South Carolina player ended up playing five games for the Chiefs last season. The Chiefs former starting fullback became expendable after the John Dorsey recently added new fullbacks to the roster. First the Chiefs selected Braden Wilson in the sixth round of the NFL Draft, and then they traded for Anthony Sherman in the Javier Arenas deal with the Cardinals.

If you never read MNChiefsfan's take on DiMarco, you should definitely check it out. Consider it a memorial of sorts.

DiMarco was originally signed as an undrafted free agent by the San Diego Chargers after the 2011 NFL Draft.
