New WR to practice squad
The Kansas City Chiefs signed wide receiver Rashad Ross to the practice squad and released guard Chandler Burden from the practice squad, the team announced today.
Rashad Ross (6-0, 181), who will wear jersey #19 with the Chiefs, originally entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Tennessee Titans on May 9, 2013. He served on the Titans practice squad, until being released on Oct. 29. Ross played collegiately at Arizona State, where he appeared in 26 games (14 starts) and caught 55 passes for 864 yards with seven touchdowns over two seasons. He added 28 kickoff returns for 779 yards with two touchdowns and was a member of the Sun Devils track and field team.
Prior to his time at Arizona State, Ross played at Butte College. He prepped at Vallejo High School in Vallejo, Calif.
Chandler Burden joined the Chiefs practice squad on Oct. 2, 2013. He originally entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Tennessee Titans on April 30, 2012. He was released by the Titans, prior to the 2012 season, then signed by the Miami Dolphins, where he served on the team's practice squad. He was released by the Dolphins on Aug. 23, 2013.
The Blue Ash, Ohio, native played collegiately at Kentucky. He played in 43 games (26 starts) with the Wildcats. Burden prepped at La Salle High School in Cincinnati, Ohio.
This news coming the day the news of Bowe came out, think they're checking him out to move him on the team? Or are they moving whatever practice squad WR we currently have up to the team?
Regardless of what happens with Bowe, the Chiefs need help at WR. I don't know anything about Ross, but it sounds like he is really fast. The question is, "Can he catch the football?"
