According to Howard Balzer, the Chiefs brought in seven players for tryouts on Tuesday including WR Dres Anderson, S Jimmy Hall, S Earl Wolff, LB Amarlo Herrera, LB Dwayne Norman, RB Isaiah Pead, and QB Joel Stave.
The Chiefs ultimately elected to sign Stave and Hall to their practice squad of this group.
Pead, 26, is a former second-round pick of the Rams back in 2012. He was in the final year of his four-year, $4.038 million rookie contract when St. Louis waived him a few months ago.
The Steelers later signed him to a contract after Le’Veon Bell got hurt, but he lasted just a few weeks in Pittsburgh. The Dolphins wound up signing him to a contract back in March and he managed to make the 53-man roster coming out of the preseason but was cut loose a few weeks ago as Miami had a number of changes to their roster.
In 2016, Pead has appeared in three games and rushed for 22 yards on eight carries (2.8 YPC) to go along with one reception for six yards receiving and no touchdowns for the Dolphins.
Wolff, 26, is a former fifth-round pick pick of the Eagles back in 2013. He was entering the third year of his four-year, $2.37 million rookie contract when the Eagles waived him with an injury settlement back in August of last year.
Wolff later signed on to the Jaguars’ practice squad and was brought back on a future/reserve contract this past January. Unfortunately, Jacksonville waived him with an injury designation coming out of the preseason and he later reverted to their injured reserve list.
The Jaguars cut him loose a week into the season.
In 2014, Wolff appeared in seven games for the Eagles and recorded seven tackles and a pass defense.
