Who says you can't go home again. That's exactly what defensive lineman Atiyyah Ellison has to be saying to himself this afternoon.
On Wednesday the former Missouri Tiger standout, signed a contract to play for the Kansas City Chiefs.
In 2009, the St. Louis native started six games for Jacksonville. He originally entered the NFL in 2005 as a third round draft pick of the Carolina Panthers.
But since, he's bounced around landing on various practice squads in Baltimore (2006) and San Francisco (2008).
Ironically, he joins the Chiefs the same week they are preparing to face the injury plagued Jaguars.
At the University of Missouri, Ellison started 31 of 36 games. He was a productive player for the Tigers. In three seasons he recorded 6.5 sacks and 171 tackles.
It's not known where the Chiefs are going to use Ellison at the moment but he could ultimately back-up Ron Edwards.
