Restricted free agent LB Dan Skuta has visited with the Chiefs in Kansas City as the free agency dance continued in the NFL.
Whether Skuta visited on Monday or over the weekend wasn’t known for sure, as the Chiefs have been tardy in submitting their visitor list to the league office as required. Nevertheless, the 6-2, 248-pound product of Division II Grand Valley State (MI) spent time with the coaches and administrators talking defense and special teams.
As a restricted free agent if the Chiefs elect to make him an offer, the Bengals will have the right to match that tender. If they do not, there is no compensation for Cincinnati.
Skuta went to the same high school in Flint, Michigan as former Chiefs CB Brandon Carr; he was one-year behind Carr. They played together for three years at Grand Valley State. Skuta was signed after the 2009 NFL Draft as a rookie free agent by the Bengals.
In three seasons with the team, he played in 40 games with 4 starts, including three last year at middle linebacker. He has a total of 55 defensive tackles, including 31 stops last season. He also contributed a dozen tackles in the kicking game.
