The Kansas City Chiefs officially signed TE Jace Amaro to a futures deal for the 2018 season on Tuesday.
As of now, the Chiefs have signed 11 players to futures deals including:
- WR Gehrig Dieter
- RB George Atkinson
- CB Will Redmond
- NT Mike Purcell
- TE Anthony Firkser
- OT Dillon Gordon
- G Kaleb Johnson
- LB Tyrone Holmes
- OT Andrew Wylie
- WR Daniel Braverman
- TE Jace Amaro
Futures deals are essentially camp invites that will give players the opportunity to compete for roster spots during offseason workouts and training camp.
Amaro, 25, is a former second-round pick by the Jets of the 2014 NFL Draft. He lasted just two years in New York before he was waived at the start of last season and later claimed off of waivers by the Titans.
Amaro was entering the third year of his four-year, $4.29 million rookie contract that included $2.45 million guaranteed and was set to earn a base salary of $1,005,408 for the 2017 season but he was waived by the Titans as they trimmed their roster down to 53 players coming out of the preseason.
In 2016, Amaro appeared in three games and caught three passes for 59 yards receiving and no touchdowns for the Titans.
