Witzmann, 28, originally signed on with the Texans as an undrafted free agent out of South Dakota State back in 2014. He lasted just over a year in Houston before signing on to the Saints’ practice squad a few weeks into the 2015 season.
New Orleans elected to bring him back on a future/reserve contract, but he was unfortunately waived a few weeks after the 2016 draft. Witzmann had a brief stint with the Cowboys before the Chiefs claimed off waivers.
Last year, the Chiefs signed Witzmann two-year, $990,000 contract. However, he was cut loose coming out of the preseason.
In 2017, Witzmann appeared in all 16 games for the Chiefs.
