The Kansas City Chiefs signed six players to future/reserve contracts on Tuesday including DT Alameda Ta’amu.
Future/reserve contracts are essentially an opportunity for players compete for a roster spot in offseason workouts and training camp.
Ta’amu, 25, is a former fourth round pick of the Pittsburgh Steelers back in 2012. He was picked up on waivers by the Cardinals back in September 2013.
Ta’amu’s short career has been marred by an arrest for drunk driving, reckless endangerment, and resisting arrest.
Arizona wound up waiving him at the start of the season.
In 2014, appeared in seven games for the Cardinals, but didn’t record a single statistic. In fact, Pro Football Focus has him down for playing just 24 snaps last year.
