Boye-Doe, 23, was among the 51 tryout players the Chiefs hosted for their rookie minicamp the weekend before last. Checking in at six feet and 170 pounds, the Ghana-born corner appeared in 42 games (starting 35) over his four-year career with the Wildcats, collecting 74 tackles (56 solo, three for loss), 13 passes defended and a forced fumble. He was named an honorable mention to the coaches’ All-Big 12 team in his redshirt senior season.
He played his high school ball in Lawrence, Kansas under head coach Dirk Wedd, where he was a standout as both a defensive back and a wide receiver.
Boye-Doe had been scheduled to attend the Washington Commanders’ rookie minicamp over the weekend, but ultimately chose not to take part.
UPDATE 3:28 p.m. Monday: According to the NFL’s Monday transaction report, Kansas City is waiving Missouri State wide receiver Tyrone Scott to make room for Boye-Does on the roster. Scott was among the 16 undrafted free agents the Chiefs signed on May 6. With these two transactions, the team’s 90-man roster remains full.
