The Kansas City Chiefs have their sights set on another Super Bowl run after starting the season 9-2. With a playoff spot nearly locked up, Kansas City is sure to be a top destination for talented players who clear waivers in the coming months.

Now the Chiefs have added an intriguing wide receiver to their practice squad.

Kansas City signed wideout Bryan Edwards to a contract on Monday evening. Edwards was waived by the Atlanta Falcons ahead of Week 12, and he became a free agent after going unclaimed on the wire.

The Chiefs have plenty of familiarity with Edwards, who spent his first two NFL seasons with the division rival Las Vegas Raiders. After a quiet rookie year in 2020, the former third-round pick broke out for 34 receptions, 571 receiving yards and 3 touchdowns in 2021. One of his best games came against Kansas City, too, when he erupted for 88 yards and a touchdown during Week 10.

Edwards struggled to replicate those numbers after being dealt to Atlanta, however, recording just 3 total receptions in a run-heavy offense this year. Based on his recent success though, the South Carolina product is a worthwhile practice squad addition at the very least.
