Chiefs Sign Sixth-Round Draft Picks

Warpaint Illustrated has learned that the Chiefs have signed a pair of their drafted rookies for the 2006 season. On Tuesday evening they inked sixth-rounders Guard Tre Stallings and wide receiver Jeff Webb. Both players signed three-year contracts according to our friends at 610 sports out of Kansas City.

Stallings played offensive tackle during four seasons at Mississippi State, but is a guard prospect for the Chiefs.

Webb was a three-year starter at wide receiver for San Diego State University, recording 234 receptions, 2,890 yards and 20 touchdowns during his Aztec career.

Of Kansas City's remaining unsigned draft picks, second-rounder Bernard Pollard is expected to sign next. The Chiefs are reportedly in a good position in their negotiations with top selection Tamba Hali and third round pick quarterback Brodie Croyle.

Seventh-rounder Jarrad Page could be receiving a new offer from MLB's Angels, but it remains to be seen whether he will choose football or baseball. Our guess is that he'll choose the Chiefs.

In other Chiefs news, despite reports from ESPN that Ty Law is leaning toward the New England Patriots, Kansas City remains in the game to land the All-Pro cornerback. Warpaint Illustrated has confirmed with a league source that Law is expected to choose between the Chiefs and Patriots.

On 610 Sports this evening, Kansas City Chiefs President Carl Peterson confirmed that very item when he acknowledged that the Law sweepstakes was indeed a two-team race.

Stay tuned to Warpaint Illustrated for the latest news on Ty Law and the rest of the Chiefs draft picks.
