Former Chiefs S Sanders Commings Signs Minor-League Deal With Braves

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reportedly Thursday that former Chiefs S Sanders Commings has signed a minor-league contract with the Braves, as he pursues a career in baseball.

  • According to Rosenthal, Commings received a $100K signing bonus from the Braves, which happens to be the same Tim Tebow got from the Mets.

Commings, 26, was a fifth-round pick by the Chiefs back in 2013. During his brief NFL career, Commings dealt with a number of injuries, which led to him appearing in just two career games during his rookie season before he was placed on season-ending injured reserve.

In 2015, the Chiefs waived Commings with an injury settlement at the start of the regular season and he later reverted to injured reserve after clearing waivers. Kansas City eventually waived him an injury settlement towards the end of the 2015 season and he wound up sitting out all of last year.

For his career, Commings appeared in two games and recorded a single tackle for the Chiefs.
