Post The Chiefs made some roster moves official a
[code][/code]head of rookie minicamp Saturday."The Kansas City Chiefs released three players and signed one ahead of rookie minicamp Kansas City Chiefs Jerseys Stitched , which begins on Saturday, May 4. The Chiefs released wide receiver Josh Crockett, defensive tackle Henry Mondeaux and fullback Aaron Ripkowski and signed Old Dominion defensive end Tim Ward.Chiefs general manager Brett Veach explained that 6-foot-6, 255-pound Ward was a player the team discovered while scouting his teammate, Oshane Ximines, who was taken in the third round of the NFL Draft by the New York Giants.“[Ward] was a guy that tore his knee, I don’t know that he’ll be ready this year Nick Allegretti Jersey nfl draft , but he’s going to be a prototypical Steve Spagnuolo defensive end,” Veach said on a conference call last Monday. “He’s long, athletic, started playing football late, and everyone kind of went in there to evaluate the Ximines kid who got drafted at Old Dominion, this was a kid that one of our scouts, Mike Davis Super Bowl Nick Allegretti Jersey , had mentioned, ‘Hey, they’ve got this other defensive end and he’s raw as all get-out, started playing football late.’ The late tape at Old Dominion he really started coming on, we had him in here for one of the workouts here. The NFL conducted another combine here that we had and he had come to that. Spent a lot of time with him. You may not see him this year, but we’re going to take our time with his rehab, we’re not going to rush him Football Nick Allegretti Jersey , and he could be a guy that could really develop and be a player in the future.”Crockett spent last season on the Chiefs’ practice squad, while the other two releases were signed by the Chiefs earlier this offseason.Late Friday evening, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that the Chiefs gave former Syracuse wide receiver Jamal Custis $100,000 in guaranteed money to sign with the club.That probably means that Custis has a solid chance at making the final 53-man roster. Friend-of-the-site Terez Paylor chimed in with some other details on the undrafted free agents’ contracts on Friday.Thor Nystrom of graded the Chiefs with the best undrafted free agent class.The Chiefs’ undrafted free agent additions should be finalized by the time the team takes the field early Saturday afternoon. We’ll keep you updated. The Chiefs must think the pass rusher they just acquired is a lot better than the one they traded away.Kansas City gave up a 2019 first-round pick and a 2020 second-round pick to acquire Frank Clark from the Seahawks. Previously this offseason, the Chiefs traded Dee Ford to the 49ers for a 2020 second-round pick.Essentially, the Chiefs traded Dee Ford and a first-round pick to get Frank Clark. To give up a first-round pick rather than just keeping Ford, the Chiefs must think Clark is better than Ford Mecole Hardman Kansas City Chiefs Jerseys , even though Clark and Ford both had 13 sacks last season.The Chiefs have gone through a major defensive overhaul this offseason, and it’s easy to see why: Their offense was great last year, but their defense couldn’t stop Tom Brady and company in the playoffs, keeping Kansas City out of the Super Bowl.But it’s easy to wonder whether the Chiefs aren’t giving up too much to make these changes. They’re going to pay Clark a reported $105 million over five years, and give up a first-round pick and a second-round pick for the privilege of doing that. Compare that to the way the Lions upgraded at defensive end, by paying Trey Flowers $90 million over five years, and not giving up any draft picks to do it.If Clark is an All-Pro and the Chiefs have a Super Bowl-caliber defense Kansas City Chiefs Jerseys 2019 , all of this will be worth it. But that’s a big “if.”
