Three #Chiefs notes from the NFL’s official transactions report:— Pete Sweeney (@pgsween) November 3, 2021
- LA Rams pluck LB Christian Rozeboom from KC practice squad
- Chiefs sign TE Nakia Griffin-Stewart to their practice squad
- Chiefs protect practice squad QB Shane Buechele
First, the Los Angeles Rams signed linebacker Christian Rozeboom to their 53-man roster off the Chiefs’ practice squad. The 24-year-old Rozeboom originally signed with the Rams as an undrafted free agent out of South Dakota State in 2021 before landing with the Chiefs practice squad. He was up for the Chiefs against the Tennessee Titans two weeks ago and registered 10 special-teams snaps and one tackle. The Rams are currently in need of special teams depth due to injury.
The Chiefs replaced Rozeboom with Nakia Griffin-Stewart, a 24-year-old, 6-foot-5, 260-pound tight end who spent part of the 2020 season with the Green Bay Packers practice squad after coming into the league as an undrafted free agent. He played three seasons at Rutgers before transferring to Pittsburgh in 2019. Griffin-Stewart played in all 13 games for the Panthers, accumulating 19 catches for 185 yards and a touchdown. He was most recently with the New York Giants.
Quarterback Shane Buechele is once again protected, blocking any other team from signing him before Sunday. Buechele was 37 of 55 for 422 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in the preseason.
