Chiefs sign ex Bearcat Mardy Gilyard, 2 others
The Chiefs signed former University of Cincinnati WR Mardy Gilyard, TE Kevin Brock and DE Marcus Dixon as they attempt to build depth at the bottom of their roster.
Kansas City was particularly thin at wide receiver last year, and with the prospect of losing Dwayne Bowe to free agency, new GM John Dorsey and coach Andy Reid are searching for players to compete for roster spots. Gilyard would fit that mold. he's a former 4th round draft pick who spent last season with the Eagles and Jets, so Reid has some familarity with him.
Brock appeared in 2 games 2 years ago with Buffalo, while Dixon played in 22 games between 2010 and 2012 with the Jets.
