The KC Chiefs announced last Friday that they had signed former New England Patriot, and Rutgers receiver, Mark Harrison.

As a first year pro, the 23-year old Harrison sat out the entire 2013 season due to a foot injury. The Patriots signed Harrison as an un-drafted rookie free agent last May, and were hoping to get something out of the young prospect.

In his final season at Rutgers, Harrison caught 44 passes for 583 yards and six touchdowns, flashing signs of great ball skills and capable to score on almost any play. (stats via CFB

According to Nick Underhill of, Harrison was tardy to one of New England’s OTA sessions before being released from the club. The Chiefs saw an opportunity and decided to bring him on board for training camp. 

As of now, the Chiefs will be rolling into St. Joe with 13 receivers on the roster.

Dwayne Bowe, Donnie Avery, and A.J. Jenkins are the only three that are for sure to make the roster, barring injury or off the field troubles, so there is some serious competition for the 4th-6th receiver spots on the depth chart.

Mark Harrison is an intriguing young prospect that’s now added to the mix. Receiver is certainly a position that we’ll all be keeping our eye on this late summer.
