Chiefs host 3 players for visits on Thursday

January 21st, 2021

The Kansas City Chiefs continue to work on their roster of the future, hosting three free agents for visits.

According to the NFL’s official transaction report, the Chiefs hosted DB Rodney Clemons, OL Darryl Williams and OL Justin Britt at team facilities for visits on Thursday. The team is very familiar with Clemons and Williams as both were UDFA signings following the 2020 NFL Draft. They each spent the regular season on the practice squad in Kansas City and were released recently. Bringing these players back on visits signals that they intend to sign them to reserve/future contracts or keep them in the NFL’s COVID-19 protocols should they need to return to the practice squad.

Britt, 29, is a former second-round draft pick of the Seattle Seahawks by the way of the University of Missouri. He has experience playing all over the offensive line including center, left guard, right guard and right tackle. He started in 86 career games over the span of 2014-2019 but spent the 2020 NFL season as a free agent as he recovered from a serious knee injury suffered late in the 2019 season.

The Chiefs have some future needs along the offensive line at a number of positions and having a versatile player like Britt in the fold could be valuable. If the visit went well, expect the team to sign him to the practice squad or possibly even a reserve/future deal. If you’re not familiar with reserve/future contracts, they allow players to sign with a new team prior to the beginning of the new league year without counting them toward the 53-man roster.
