Chiefs kick off free agency with signing of Smith Jr.

After a quiet Day 1 of free agency, the Kansas City Chiefs finally added a player to their pool of pass catchers on Day 2: tight end Irv Smith Jr.

Well, that wasn’t necessarily the name people were looking for as far as offensive weapons go. Still, the tight end formerly of the Cincinnati Bengals and Minnesota Vikings does have receiving skills. It’s what made him an intriguing draft prospect out of Alabama in the 2019 class, selected by Minnesota with the 50th overall pick.
