Chiefs sign long snapper James Winchester

It looks as if the Chiefs are going to have an interesting battle at long snapper this season.

The Chiefs signed another long snapper, James Winchester, on Thursday, according to a tweet from his agent, Ken Sarnoff.

Winchester is the third long snapper the Chiefs have signed in recent months, along with Brandon Hartson and Jorgen Hus.

The Chiefs’ long snapper last season, veteran Thomas Gafford, is an unrestricted free agent.

Winchester, who is listed at 6 feet 3 and 210 pounds, played football at Oklahoma. He also spent time with the Philadelphia Eagles.
