The Kansas City Chiefs announced on Thursday that the team has signed wide receiver Chris Conley to their practice squad. Terms of the contract will not be released by the club.
Chris Conley is returning to the Chiefs since leaving in free agency in 2019. The Texans had cut a veteran wide receiver from the practice squad Tuesday. Conley played in two games this season as a standard elevation from the practice squad and has no catches. Conley was signed to a one-year contract in the offseason. He caught 22 passes for 323 yards and two touchdowns last season. Conley (6-foot-3, 205 pounds) has 4.35 speed in the 40-yard dash and a 45-inch vertical leap.
A former Kansas City Chiefs third-round draft pick from Georgia, Conley has 213 career receptions for 2,807 yards and 15 touchdowns.
I am excited about this move because the Chiefs bring back not only two other guys in Conley and Marcus Kemp (who signed yesterday) who are familiar with the team but in Conley, you add another tall speedy who runs below 4.4 and now you have three receivers who can run below 4.4 (Hardman, Valdes-Scantling, and now Conley).
I am excited that we were able to bring Chris back to Kansas City. He’s fast, and strong, both mentally and physically, and will provide us an additional threat to our passing game. I am also glad to see Chris aka the Jedi Master come up with new short Star War film ideas.
Again, welcome back Chris and Marcus, we got a title to win.
