Chiefs add Veteran Wide Receiver

According to the Chiefs official website the Kansas City Chiefs have added a new player to the 53-man roster.

With the first round of the playoffs set for Kansas City on Sunday, the Chiefs tinkered with their playoff roster by adding veteran wide receiver Kevin Curtis. To make room for Curtis, the team placed defensive back Donald Washington on injured reserve.

Curtis has been in the NFL since 2003 where he was third round selection of the St. Louis Rams. The former Utah State standout played for the Chief cross state rivals until the conclusion of the 2006 season. After that stint, he moved to the Philadelphia Eagles where he played three seasons for the NFC East team.

In December of 2010, he was signed by the Miami Dolphins but they cut him before their regular season finale last weekend.

Curtis has been a productive NFL receiver, catching 252 passes and 20 touchdowns in his seven-year career. However last year his career hit a standstill when he missed 12 games for the Eagles in 2009 after undergoing knee surgery.

Since then he's had a hard time catching on with any NFL teams. Prior to his signing with the Dolphins last month, Curtis had a pair of tryouts this season with the New York Giants and Detroit Lions. However, neither team offered him a contract.

Still his addition to the roster does bolster the Chiefs passing game and one would think that with this signing, Kansas City might attack the suspect Ravens defensive secondary on Sunday.

But more so this signing gives Kansas City another veteran presence at the wide receiver position to go along with starters Dwayne Bowe and Chris Chambers.

In other Chiefs news, the team did sign Tight End Cody Tate to their practice squad.
