Chiefs Add Local Linebacker

Orrick native Chad Kilgore was signed by the Chiefs on Wednesday, joining the roster at linebacker.

A product of Excelsior Springs High School and Northwest Missouri State, last year Kilgore spent training camp and the pre-season with Oakland. He signed just a day before the Raiders began training camp, and a week after a tryout with the Green Bay Packers who liked what they saw but did not have a spot on the roster for him.

Kilgore played in all four pre-season games for the Raiders and totaled 8 tackles on defense and 3 on special teams. He was released as part of the Raiders final roster moves to reach the 53-man regular-season limit.

At 6-1, 230 pounds the 23-year old Kilgore played in 57 games over four seasons with Northwest, racking up 392 total tackles, 7 sacks, 5 interceptions and 3 forced fumbles. He earned all-state recognition as a senior at Excelsior Springs.
