Chiefs claimed G/T Matt Reynolds off waivers from the Eagles.
An undrafted free agent, Reynolds was a standout at BYU, but is already 27 years old (on May 31) after taking time off for his Mormon mission. It will be a victory if he survives first cuts.
Branden Albert is at the Chiefs facility and will practice Tuesday, as expected.
Despite a rocky past few months, Albert appears to be in positive spirits now. He recently noted via Instagram that he's fired up to be back with the Chiefs as their starting left tackle. Albert will play out this year on a one-year, $9.828M franchise tender and then try to break the bank in free agency.
Chiefs agreed to terms with No. 96 overall pick RB Knile Davis on a four-year contract.
Of all the running backs we studied on game tape before the draft, none was less impressive than Davis, whom we likened to a less ball-secure version of Jackie Battle and poor man's Shonn Greene. Despite eye-popping Combine measurables, Davis lacks explosive running and cutting ability and was a chronic fumbler at Arkansas. He's someone to avoid in Dynasty rookie drafts.
Chiefs coach Andy Reid is confident third-round pick Knile Davis' fumbling habit is fixable.
A chronic fumbler at Arkansas, Davis is being taught by RBs coach Eric Bienemy to hold the ball "high and tight" at rookie minicamp. "He just needs to play in order to work his way through that," Reid said. "I thought he needed to work his way through that and then you'd have a pretty good football player." The Chiefs hope Davis will win the primary backup job behind Jamaal Charles.
The Kansas City Star says that undrafted QB Tyler Bray has an "excellent chance" of making the Chiefs' roster.
Understandably, the Star isn't taking Ricky Stanzi seriously. Bray has ideal NFL size and arm strength and would have been drafted if not for maturity issues and questions about his work habits. With just Chase Daniel and Stanzi ahead of him, Bray should be able to win a roster spot as a developmental third quarterback.
Chiefs coach Andy Reid expects Branden Albert to report to the team on Monday and line up at left tackle in minicamp practice.
Reid said Albert "will" be at practice, indicating they've reached some of kind of arrangement that isn't a long-term deal but will reunite Kansas City's sixth-year left tackle with the only team he's ever known. The agreement likely means the Chiefs have called off trade efforts, at least for now, because Albert's $9.828 million franchise tender is fully guaranteed and he'll face some risk of injury at offseason practice. If the season began today, Kansas City's impressive O-Line would likely look like this: LT Albert, LG Jeff Allen, C Rodney Hudson, RG Jon Asamoah, and RT Eric Fisher. It's a good group for Jamaal Charles.
Chiefs agreed to terms with No. 207 overall pick DE Mike Catapano on a four-year contract.
The 2012 Ivy League Defensive Player of the Year, Catapano logged 12 sacks and 15.5 tackles for loss. Standing in at 6-foot-3, 271 pounds, Catapano clocked a 4.75 40-yard dash at the Combine while reeling off 33 reps on the bench press. He could see time at outside linebacker, or be asked to put on weight and play right defensive end in Bob Sutton's 3-4 defense.
