Justyn Ross was a former top prospect at receiver before suffering a spinal injury and going undrafted last year. Ross joined the Chiefs as an undrafted free agent but later had season-ending foot surgery.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes spoke highly of Ross’ work ethic and hopes it translates to the field. 

“Yeah, I mean, the talent is through the roof,” Mahomes said, via “I think anyone can see that. He’s getting better and better. Even though he wasn’t active all year he was in the building and he was able to see the guys and how we do things. Listening and being in the meetings and some of the stuff like that. I’m excited for him, man. To get out there and get the reps in practice, get the little fine details that we like to do in this offense.”

  • Chiefs QB Blaine Gabbert signed a one-year veteran salary benefit deal with Kansas City that includes a $152,500 signing bonus and $1.165 million base salary, $940,000 of which is guaranteed. (Over The Cap)
