Ok, I have been reading now for over a week all of the rookie signings going on around the league including several first round picks. Several teams heven ave their entire draft already signed.

I would love to see us start to get these picks locked up!

I have been hearing some gushing about one of their first signings: Dexter Heyman. His page from NFLdraftscout.com
http://www.nfldraftscout.com/ratings/dsprofile.php?pyid=83006&draftyear=2012&genpos=OLB

We have needed a nickel ILB, because Belcher is weak in coverage. This guy looks like a possibility.

J,
Cool info. I was really talking about our drafted rookies, but it is nice to hear about Heyman possibly sticking on the roster. I am wondering if Heyman will serve more as Johnson's backup as Siler is behind Belcher.

Here is something on Neiko Thorpe:

http://kansascity.sbnation.com/kansas-city-chiefs/2012/5/11/3014267/chiefs-rookie-mini-camp-db-neiko-thorpe-named-top-undrafted-free

This guy looks like a natural for ST, so he could stick.

This is good news. I just hope the oily residue of King Carl doesn't float to the top again and cause us to take forever to sign Poe. The Berry signing was ideal with no fuss, no wait, no worry. That is what we need.

The UDFA are all signed.

There will be some tryouts during Rookie Minicamp, incl. TE Martin Rucker and that QB McSomething ...

Today the Chiefs announced they signed Wylie, Hemingway, Long and Gray.

With the rookie wage-scale and the new CBA limiting rookie pools for each team, you'll see a lot less 1st round signing drama. That was one of the main goals of the CBA.
