Three former Kansas City Chiefs have reportedly signed with new NFL teams. On Tuesday, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that tight end Ricky Seals-Jones has signed with the Washington Football Team, where he joins another former Chiefs tight end: Deon Yelder.

On Monday, NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported that former Chiefs wide receiver Tajae Sharpe had signed with the Atlanta Falcons.

Also on Monday, the Las Vegas Raiders announced they had signed former Chiefs offensive guard Patrick Omameh.

Seals-Jones spent all of last season with the Chiefs but was active for only two regular-season games. Waived at season’s end, he was re-signed to the practice squad and then activated to the roster for the team’s postseason run, appearing in the Divisional Round game against the Cleveland Browns and the AFC championship against the Buffalo Bills. His one-year contract was allowed to expire in March.

Sharpe was signed to the Chiefs’ practice squad in late December after he had been released by the Minnesota Vikings. He appeared in no Chiefs games. The four-year NFL veteran — who started 29 games for the Tennessee Titans from 2016 through 2019 — was signed to a reserve/future contract in April, but was released by the team on May 17.

Omameh was also signed to the Kansas City practice squad in late December — but was elevated for the Week 17 game against the Los Angeles Chargers, in which he started at right tackle. The Chiefs chose not to sign the seven-year NFL veteran — who has started 58 games for seven teams in his career — for the coming season.

Meanwhile, former Chiefs cornerback Bashaud Breeland remains on the free-agent market. He was not signed by the Minnesota Vikings during his visit to Minneapolis on Thursday — but on Tuesday, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reported that the Chicago Bears have expressed interest in the seven-year NFL veteran, who started 26 games for the Chiefs in 2019 and 2020.
