The Chiefs officially announced their 10-man practice squad, and it includes seven players who spent the entirety of training camp with the team.
The Chiefs brought back seventh-round rookie receiver Da'Ron Brown, defensive tackle Hebron Fangupo, undrafted rookie defensive end David Irving, undrafted rookie guard Daniel Munyer, offensive tackle Jarrod Pughsley, fullback Spencer Ware and receiver Fred Williams.
Williams, 27, tore it up this preseason, catching 15 passes for 167 yards and three touchdowns, and on Monday, Chiefs general manager John Dorsey expressed his pleasure with Williams' return.
“I love Fred, the energy he brings,” Dorsey said. “I think we're lucky to have him on the practice squad. He knows the offense.
Never miss a local story.
“That to me, is a great practice squad player.”
The Chiefs also added three free agents to the practice squad in tight end Ross Travis, cornerback Jeremy Harris and offensive tackle Laurence Gibson.
Gibson, who is listed at 6 feet 6 and 315 pounds, is the most accomplished of the three. The Virginia Tech product was a seventh-round pick of the Dallas Cowboys in the 2015 NFL Draft, and was cut by the Cowboys in Saturday, when teams had to reduce their rosters from 75 to 53 men.
Gibson, who started 19 games at Virginia, boasts outstanding arm length for a tackle, as his arms measured at 35 1/2-inches at the combine. That, theoretically, can help tackles keep defensive linemen from getting into their chest. You can read Gibson's entire NFL.com scouting report here.
Travis, meanwhile, is an undrafted free agent who played basketball at Penn State. The 6-foot-7, 235 pounder was a forward who averaged 5.5 points and 6.3 rebounds as a senior in 2014.
According to the Big Ten Network, Travis has not played football since he was a high school freshman. However, a handful former college basketball players have found success as NFL tight ends, including San Diego's Antonio Gates and Seattle's Jimmy Graham.
The Chiefs also have a former college basketball player-turned-tight end on the roster in Demetrius Harris, a second-year pro who played at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
Harris, who is listed at 6 feet 2 and 185 pounds, has the kind of size the Chiefs typically like in their corners.
A seventh-round pick of the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2013, the New Mexico State product spent 2013 on injured reserve because of a back injury. In 2014, he recorded five tackles in six games. He was released by the Jaguars on Saturday. You can read his draft profile here.
