Practice Squad

The Kansas City Chiefs were believed to have one of the deepest rosters in the NFL this preseason.  So it is quite a surprise that only tight end Brian Parker was claimed off of waivers.  Quarterbacks Aaron Murray and Kevin Hogan also ended up on other rosters, but that appears to be by choice.

All in all, the Chiefs got an impressive haul.  Somehow, Frankie Hammond is still eligible for the Practice Squad.  Darrin Reaves looked to be an excellent running back prospect.  Jarrod Pughsley and Daniel Munyer have spent time on the Chiefs active roster.  The rest of the players in the group all flashed talent and potential during the preseason.

It would not be a stretch to think that all of these players (supposing they aren’t picked up elsewhere) will be invited to camp again in 2017.  In fact, there are a few of them that have a legitimate shot at making the roster next year.
