Chiefs Sign Former Second-Round DE Jerel Worthy To Practice Squad

 

The Kansas City Chiefs announced Tuesday that they have signed former second-round pick DE Jerel Worthy to their practice squad.

The Chiefs brought Worthy in for a workout on Monday after they suffered some injuries.

The Packers sent Worthy to the Patriots in trade that included a conditional 2015 late-round draft pick, but he was unable to make the team, which eliminated the draft compensation for Green Bay.

Worthy, 24, is coming off of a season-ending ACL injury, so there are some concerns about his ability moving forward. However, Chiefs GM John Dorsey was with the Packers when they drafted Worthy, so he’s more than familiar with what he brings to the table.
