#Chiefs Transactions: 6-16 Waived T, Kelvin Palmer, Baylor WR, Da’Rick Rogers, Tennessee Tech Signed T, Tavon Rooks, Kansas State
— Kansas City Chiefs (@KCChiefs) June 16, 2015
Rogers, 23, wound up going undrafted out of Tennessee Tech last year. The Colts took a chance on him, despite some of the issues that led to him transferring out of Tennessee.
However, his stay in Indianapolis lasted a little over a year as he was placed on waivers this past September following a DUI arrest. The Chiefs signed him to a contract back in January.
Last year, Rogers appeared in five games during his rookie season and caught 14 passes for 192 yards receiving and two touchdowns during his rookie season.
Rooks, 25, is a former sixth-round pick of the Saints last year. Unfortunately, he was unable to make the team’s 53-man roster coming out of the preseason, but was later added to the team’s practice squad at the start of the 2014 season.
The Cardinals later signed him to a future/reserve contract in January, but later placed him on waivers a few weeks ago.
Rooks has yet to appear in an NFL game.
