CHIEFS AGREE TO TERMS WITH THREE FREE AGENTS
Feb 21, 2006, 2:23:03 PM



Chiefs President Carl Peterson announced on Tuesday that the club had agreed to terms with three free agents. T Thomas Barnett and CB Michael Bragg agreed to terms of two-year deals and WR Darrell Hill agreed to a one-year contract. As per club policy, no further terms of the agreements were announced.



Barnett (6-4, 314) has spent time in the Chiefs training camp the past two years, but was released prior to the season on both occasions. He started 10 games for the Amsterdam Admirals of NFL Europe in 2004, helping the club average a league-high 4.2 yards per carry. The Kansas State product played in 49 games (43 starts) as a four-year letterman for the Wildcats. Barnett opened all 13 games at left tackle as a senior and earned honorable mention All-Big 12 honors. He was a four-year starter at Millwood High School in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

Bragg (6-1, 183) originally entered the NFL as a rookie free agent with the N.Y. Giants in 2005 and was released on August 30th. He completed his collegiate career at Texas A&M – Kingsville with 36 tackles, four interceptions, two fumble recoveries and 10 passes defensed. He earned first team All-Lone Star Conference South Division honors as a senior, recording 25 tackles, three interceptions, a fumble recovery and nine pass defensed. The Lakewood, California native was a three-time All-America selection in the long jump for the Javelinas after beginning his collegiate career at Cerritos Junior College. Bragg was a prep standout at Mayfair High School in Lakewood, California.

Hill (6-2, 187) rejoins the Chiefs after spending time in the club’s training camp a year ago and is reunited in Kansas City with current Chiefs special teams coach Mike Priefer, who coached him at Northern Illinois. Hill has played in 33 regular season NFL games, producing 29 special teams tackles and a forced fumble on special teams. Hill also owns three games of postseason experience, recording two special teams stops.

The Chicago, Illinois native originally entered the NFL as a seventh-round selection (225th overall) of Tennessee in the 2002 NFL Draft. During his collegiate career at Northern Illinois, Hill racked up 88 receptions for 1,595 yards (18.1 avg.) with 13 TDs. He ranked fourth in the nation as a senior in 2001, averaging 21.6 yards per catch after producing 38 catches for 822 yards with seven TDs. He also contributed four 100-yard receiving games during his senior campaign for the Huskies. Hill attended Mt. Carmel High School in Chicago, where he lettered in both football and track.

Camp fodder or depth. Necessary evils. Nothing to celebrate.
 
True Rupert....I'd really like to see them get some good wide receivers!!
 
Yeah, like the Raiders. But you've gone the opposite route as the Raiders, good QB, bottom of the barrel WR's. I bet you wish your GM could cycle through WR's the way Denver cycles through RB's.
