In the traditional opening move of the offseason, the Kansas City Chiefs signed nine players to reserve/future contracts on Tuesday. They are:

  • OT Ryan Hunter
  • TE David Wells
  • OT Pace Murphy
  • LB Robert McCray
  • LB Raymond Davison
  • DB D’Montre Wade
  • DT Joey Ivie
  • QB Chase Litton
  • WR Josh Crockett

These names are familiar to us, of course. All have been on the Chiefs practice squad — along with former Indianapolis Colts safety Chris Cooper, who was signed to the practice squad on January 8.

Many of these players will have no on-the-field impact in 2019 season. But in the week after the offseason started one year ago, here are the players that the Chiefs signed to reserve/future contracts:

  • RB George Atkinson
  • WR Daniel Braverman
  • WR Gehrig Dieter
  • TE Anthony Firkser
  • OL Dillon Gordon
  • LB Tyrone Holmes
  • OL Kaleb Johnson
  • DL Mike Purcell
  • CB Will Redmond
  • OT Andrew Wylie

So while many of these new signings will have little impact on the team in 2019, last year’s list shows us that some of them could play a significant role.

The offseason is underway.
