The Kansas City Chiefs have signed two more tryout players from this past weekend’s rookie minicamp, per Twitter.
WR Jordan Smallwood, Oklahoma

Smallwood is a 6-foot-2, 219-pound wide receiver out of the University of Oklahoma. What stands out about Smallwood is his lack of production over four injury-ridden seasons in college.
Smallwood suffered a foot injury in 2013 and a torn ACL in the spring of 2015. He had limited playing time his junior season before only making 10 catches for 97 yards in his final year.
Smallwood had just 18 career catches but managed to make an NFL roster in Kansas City with a strong tryout performance.
DB Step Durham, Georgia Tech

Step Durham is a 5-foot-9, 192-pound cornerback out of Georgia Tech.
Durham started 22 games for Georgia Tech over the last two seasons. In 2017, he led the Yellow Jackets with six passes defended, recorded five pass breakups and one interception.
It is worth noting that Durham did get into an altercation with a teammate that was caught on camera, but he later apologized. The Chiefs more than likely vetted Durham about the incident before signing him onto the offseason roster.
So far, we know of five total tryout players the Chiefs signed from rookie minicamp weekend. The Chiefs officially waived four others to make room for the tryout signees.
