ST. JOSEPH — The signing of Missouri’s Brad Madison as a college free agent already looks like a good one for the Chiefs.

Madison, who is from Bethany, Mo., likely won’t make the regular-season roster. But the rookie long snapper has provided some much-needed competition for the incumbent at his position, Thomas Gafford.
“We brought Brad Madison in for a reason,’’ special teams coach Dave Toub said Monday. “Gafford had a few bad snaps last year, kind of struggled a little bit. Bringing a guy in like that really made Gafford focus the whole offseason and then carrying over to training camp. Gafford to be honest with you is kind of pulling away. He’s doing a lot better.’’
Madison was also a defensive lineman at Missouri. With the Chiefs, he has just been a long snapper who may eventually have an NFL career.
“Brad is a good, young player (who) is a developmental player,’’ Toub said.
