Kansas City Chiefs sign four players to reserve/future contracts


The Kansas City Chiefs have signed four players today to reserve/future contracts.

The first guy up is running back/return specialist Joe McKnight. McKnight spent the entire 2013 out of the league after he was cut loose by the New York Jets earlier in the year. He’s a former 2010 fourth round draft pick of the Jets and played 39 games with them. McKnight picked up 502 rushing yards off 112 carries.

Second guy on the list is former Green Bay Packers’ free safety Jerron McMillion. He’s also a former fourth round draft pick but from the 2012 draft class. He recorded 27 tackles and one interception while he was with the Packers during his short stay with the team.

Third guy up is offensive tackle R.J. Dill. This is a position that suffered a little bit so they could use a little depth at the position. Dill bounces around between the Jacksonville Jaguars and the New England Patriots. He didn’t get any playing time.

Last guy who was signed to a reserve/futures contact is linebacker Jordan Campbell. Campbell signed with the Cincinnati Bengals where he challenged linebacker James Harrison to an arm wrestling match. Safe to say he lost. There was no chance he was going to beat him.

He finished the pre-season with three tackles in just 24 plays with the Bengals.
