The Kansas City Chiefs have wrapped up the 2021 NFL Draft, selecting a total of six players, but the festivities are not over. The team will continue to add undrafted free agents to fill out their 90-man roster. They’ll need to add 18 players or so in order to fill the offseason roster.
The Chiefs have found some gems in undrafted free agency lately. The roster is littered with players that began their careers as an undrafted free agent, such as Daniel Sorensen, Byron Pringle, Tershawn Wharton and others.
Keep in mind that this is, once again, a unique offseason altered by COVID-19. In the past, we’ve had to differentiate between signings and rookie minicamp tryout invites. Rookie minicamp is happening this year, unlike last year, but there are some new rules as it pertains to tryout invitations. Teams are only permitted to invite five players for tryouts during rookie minicamp.
The Chiefs will ultimately announce the official batch of UDFA signings at a later date, but we’ll track all of Kansas City’s signings and list them here. Be sure to bookmark this page and refresh it for periodic updates.
