Arrowheadlines: Chiefs’ UDFA most likely to make the roster

Loyola's James Murray, once a college walk-on, signs as free agent with Kansas City Chiefs | Winnetka Talk

But then, Murray got a call from the Kansas City Chiefs, who signed him as a free agent on April 28 and invited him to minicamp. His dream of playing in the NFL was intact.

“I was with my family at home watching the last rounds of the draft,” said Murray, a Wilmette resident. “Being patient with that, and everyone was looking at each other, waiting for that one call. We finally got it, and everyone was going crazy. It’s just been awesome to be here (with the Chiefs).”

Pringle led all draft-eligible wide receivers with an average of 24.1 yards per catch last season. Teams still avoided Pringle during the draft due to past transgressions and age—he turns 25 during the upcoming season.

2018 NFL Draft review: The Best, worst and biggest surprise picks for the Chiefs | AA


Derrick Nnadi

This may not be the popular opinion, but I love this pick. The Chiefs have had a hard time finding a nose tackle that can really help against the run game since Dontari Poe injured his back. Staring in 2013 the Chiefs rush defense has ranked 22nd, 28th, 8th, 26th, and 25th. Other than 2014 the Chiefs have had a hard time against the run. I know some of you are thinking that it does not matter, The Los Angeles Charges had the 31st ranked rush defense last year and the third ranked scoring defense. If the opponents are not scoring pints it does not matter, right? Well if you look at playoff teams last year six of them were ranked top ten in stopping the run. With the number one ranked Philadelphia Eagles winning the Super Bowl.

Chiefs make Rakeem Nunez-Roches cut official and re-sign DT Stefan Charles | Chiefs Wire

This appears to be a move purely motivated by saving some cap space. The Chiefs will look to save just over one million on the cap number by releasing Nunez-Roches and signing Charles. Nunez-Roches was not slated to get much playing time in 2018 considering the additions of Xavier Williams and Derrick Nnadi. It’s hard for any team to pay a guy significant dollars against the cap, when he probably won’t play all that much.
