Coach Andy Reid said Jamaal Charles (ACL) will be a limited participant in OTAs.

The definition of limited is very broad, and ultimately we would not expect Charles to do much of anything. Still, any participation makes it more likely he is available for the start of training camp. Going on 30 and with serious competition in the backfield, Charles' name value will likely cause him to be over-drafted.

Chiefs signed No. 165 overall pick WR Tyreek Hill to a four-year contract.

With a disturbing domestic violence incident on his resume, it was a surprise Hill was drafted at all, much less in the fifth round. Hill has said all the right things since being selected, but GM John Dorsey suggested his spot on the roster is contingent on continuing "to receive counseling" and to participate "in our program." If he is able to stay on the straight and narrow, Hill could help out as a returner and catch-and-run gadget player.

Chiefs signed No. 106 overall pick CB Eric Murray to a four-year contract.

Murray was a solid if not spectacular collegiate who started 39 games for Minnesota and earned third-team All-Big Ten as a senior. He flashed impressive athleticism at the Combine, however, and landed in a great spot to earn early playing time. He will compete for a role behind Marcus Peters, Phillip Gaines (ACL), and Steven Nelson.

Chiefs GM John Dorsey said negotiations with franchise-tagged S Eric Berry will be a "slow process."

"It’s gonna be kinda like Justin [Houston] last year," Dorsey added. Houston did not sign his six-year deal until deadline day last summer, and Berry's health history could make his deal even more complex. The two sides should reach an agreement by the July 15 deadline, but it may go down to the wire.

Chiefs claimed OG Jordan Devey off waivers from the 49ers.

Acquired from the Patriots last preseason, Devey was dreadful in nine starts for the 49ers before being benched. Already 28, he does not have much room to grow. The Chiefs are thin at guard, but Devey is still a roster longshot.
May 9 - 6:17 PM

Chiefs signed No. 162 overall pick QB Kevin Hogan to a four-year contract.

Hogan will open his career as the No. 3 quarterback behind Alex Smith, with Aaron Murray and Tyler Bray competing to replace Chase Daniel. Hogan's deal leaves the Chiefs with three remaining unsigned picks.
May 6 - 7:44 PM

Chiefs signed No. 105 overall pick OG Parker Ehinger to a four-year contract.

Kansas City also reached terms with fourth-round WR Demarcus Robinson on Friday. Ehinger will likely open his career at guard after playing three different positions as a four-year starter for Cincinnati.
May 6 - 3:19 PM

Chiefs signed No. 74 overall pick CB KeiVarae Russell to a four-year contract.

He signed just in time for the Chiefs' three-day rookie minicamp, which opens on Saturday. Russell was the 12th cornerback selected in last week's draft. He'll open the year behind starters Marcus Peters and Phillip Gaines.
May 6 - 3:13 PM

Chiefs waived OLB Tautyvdas Kieras.

The Chiefs signed him after an impressive showing at Mississippi State's Pro Day in March. Instead of playing football, Kieras competed as a discus and shot put thrower in college. He'll catch on as a camp body somewhere else.
May 6 - 2:21 PM

49ers waived OG Jordan Devey and K Corey Acosta.

Devey was acquired from the Patriots last preseason and ended up starting the 49ers' first nine games at right guard before getting mercifully benched. He was destroyed both as a pass protector and run blocker and is already 28.
May 6 - 11:34 AM

Chiefs signed fourth-round WR Demarcus Robinson to a four-year contract.

Robinson comes out of Florida with some big off-field concerns after being suspended four times in college. He also disappointed in pre-draft workouts. Robinson will compete for a backup job year one and doesn't seem to have a very high ceiling behind Jeremy Maclin, Chris Conley, and Albert Wilson.
May 6 - 10:14 AM

Chiefs signed No. 37 overall pick DE Chris Jones to a four-year contract.

A versatile lineman who should help in both base sets and sub packages, Jones is an upside pick who needs to improve his down-to-down consistency. Only 21, he has plenty of time to make the adjustments he needs. He will start out as a rotational lineman behind Jaye Howard, Allen Bailey, and Dontari Poe.
May 5 - 12:58 PM

Seahawks waived C Drew Nowak, RB Cameron Marshall, TE Ronnie Shields, DE Josh Shirley and WR Tyler Slavin.

The moves make room for Seattle's undrafted free agent class. Nowak started the first eight games last season at center, but he ended up losing his job to Patrick Lewis. He will be a roster long shot wherever he lands.
May 4 - 5:00 PM

Chiefs exercised LT Eric Fisher's fifth-year option for 2017.

The option is worth $11.9 million. Despite being the No. 1 overall pick in 2013, it was not a slam dunk decision for the Chiefs to activate Fisher's option. Fisher has struggled throughout his career and performed only marginally better when moved from right to left tackle last season. It is not a given he ever develops into an above-average starter. With the option guaranteed for injury only, it is still possible Fisher is not with Kansas City in 2017.
May 2 - 12:15 PM

Chiefs signed Florida State LB Terrance Smith.

Smith (6'3/235) made 29 starts for the Seminoles, compiling 13 career tackles for loss, three sacks, and three forced fumbles. Smith earned second-team All-ACC in 2014 before battling a senior-year ankle injury that cost him four games. He showed passable athleticism in Indy, running 4.77 with a 34 1/2-inch vertical and 10-foot broad jump. Smith looks good on the hoof, but he missed 24 tackles over his final two college seasons and wasn't an impact player in the ACC. He's a long shot to become a successful pro.
