Chiefs Add Another Free Agent

The Chiefs added another free agent to their roster on Thursday, but the question is whether Ryan D’Imperio joins them as a fullback or a linebacker.

The 25-year old New Jersey native has played both positions during his football career. In 3 seasons and 12 regular season games with Minnesota he was a 6-2, 241-pound fullback. At Rutgers University he was a linebacker, earning All-Big East status while racking up 117 total tackles, 6 sacks and 2 interceptions, including one he returned 38 yards for a touchdown.

D’Imperio was a 7th-round choice of the Vikings in the 2010 NFL Draft, going at selection #237. He spent the ’10 season on the Vikes practice squad and began the 2011 season on the developmental team until he was added to the active roster for the last 12 games of the season. He started one game and caught 2 passes for 7 yards. He was released at the end of the 2012 pre-season and did not play in the NFL last season.

His college career included a severe broken right leg and three reconstructive surgeries after an injury suffered during spring practice in 2007. He fractured his fibula and tibia and had reconstructive surgery on his knee over 3 surgeries and a number of other small procedures.

    Even in the desert and wearing Hawian shirts their still working. I am so happy pioli was evicted. That’s 14 new bodies and 4 resigned. For the last four years all I heard about was how the compitition level was going to increase to improve the team; I just didn’t realize it would take change I regime to see it.

    I would say I can’t wait for the draft to see what Reid/Dosey will do, but I won’t. With what’s already taken place so far I have to believe the ride will continue. Besides, Jr has a very deep wallet after four years of dinero anorexia, he can aford to let loose.

    Go Chiefs!!
