Chiefs Worked Out Five Players Including CB Will Redmond

According to Howard Balzer, the Kansas City Chiefs brought in five free agents for tryouts on Tuesday including WR Devin Lucien, WR Alonzo Russell, WR Noel Thomas, WR Paul Turner and CB Will Redmond.

Of this group, the Chiefs elected to sign Lucien to their practice squad.

Redmond, 23, was taken in the third round of this year’s NFL draft. He signed a four-year, $3.54 million contract with the 49ers and stands to make a base salary of $590,880 for the 2017 season.

Redmond wound up spending the entire 2016 on injured reserve after he suffered a torn ACL. Unfortunately, the 49ers waived Redmond with an injury designation and he was once again placed on injured reserve coming out of the preseason.

San Francisco waived Redmond from injured reserve with a settlement a few weeks ago.

During his college career at Mississippi State, Redmond recorded 94 tackles, 5.5 tackles for a loss, five interceptions, and eight pass defenses over the course of three seasons and 26 games.

Lucien, 24, is a former seventh-round pick by the Patriots out of Arizona State in the 2016 NFL Draft. He was in the first year of a four-year rookie contract when the Patriots decided to waive him and sign him to their practice squad.

New England re-signed him to a futures contract back in February but was eventually waived with an injury settlement. Lucien had a brief stint on the Colts’ practice squad last month.

During his four-year college career, Lucien recorded 124 receptions for 1,826 yards receiving (14.7 YPC) and 12 touchdowns.
