Kansas City Chiefs sign an offensive lineman to the practice squad

New, comments

The Kansas City Chiefs have added offensive lineman Mike Liedtke to the practice squad, according to his agent (via Aaron Wilson).

There's not much out there on Liedtke, who was with the Miami Dolphins this offseason. He went to Illinois State where he would have been teammates with Chiefs fifth round pick TE James O'Shaughnessy.

Here is his bio on the Illinois State page:

2014: Started all 15 games at left tackle ... three-year starter on the offensive line ... named MVFC Offensive Lineman of the Week (Nov. 15), after he graded out at 96 percent and helped the Redbirds rush for 293 yards and a season-best four touchdowns on the ground in a 45-26 win at South Dakota ... key member of the offensive line unit that led the way for Coprich, who led the FCS and the MVFC in rushing yards (2,274) and rushing touchdowns (27) ... also aided Coprich in rushing for over 100 yards in 14 out of 15 games, setting a school and league mark for consecutive 100-plus yard games to start a season.

Like all practice squad players, he faces a long road to actually making the 53-man roster and contributing to the team on game days.
