Chiefs Sign OL Tavon Rooks, Waive WR Da’Rick Rogers & OT Kelvin Palmer



The Kansas City Chiefs announced the signing of OL Tavon Rooks and the release of WR Da’Rick Rogers and OT Kelvin Palmer on Tuesday.

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.


The Kansas City Chiefs have signed OL Tavon Rooks to a contract on Monday, according to his agent Richard Kopelman, via Ian Rapoport.

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.
