Kansas City Chiefs sign former Baltimore Ravens UDFA to the practice squad

The Kansas City Chiefs have added cornerback Deji Olatoye to the practice squad, according to the NFL's transactions list.

Olatoye entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent this offseason after signing with the Baltimore Ravens in the spring. He remained on the team's practice squad to enter the season, but was cut shortly thereafter. Most recently, the Seahawks brought him in on a tryout just the last week.

Olatoye is a 6'1, 194 pound cornerback out of North Carolina A&T. The Chiefs have space to add Olatoye after cutting two players earlier in the week from the practice squad.

ESPN's Jamison Hensley gave a rundown of the Ravens practice squad earlier this season and gave this breakdown of Olatoye:

The undrafted rookie from North Carolina A&T generated buzz in spring workouts but he was unable to maintain that this summer. His struggles in coverage in the second preseason led to him getting waived in the first round of cuts. Olatoye, a former teammate of Jimmy Smith at Colorado (before he transferred to North Carolina A&T), has intriguing size and length for the position.

In addition, here are some highlights of Olatoye during his time at Colorado:
