Chiefs Wrap-Up Contracts With All Draft Picks

The Chiefs now have all nine of their draft choices under contract.

The team announced late Friday afternoon that first-round cornerback Marcus Peters, third-round wide receiver Chris Conley and third-round cornerback Steven Nelson signed contracts. That wraps up the entire 2015 NFL Draft class for the Chiefs.

In other roster moves on Friday, the Chiefs released tight end Brandon Barden and defensive tackle Hebron Fangupo.

They also signed undrafted college free agent defensive tackle Charles Tuaau out of Texas A&M-Commerce. Tuaau is 6-3½, 328 pounds and is a native of Hawaii. He played junior college ball at Riverside Community College in California and then spent two years at the school that was formerly known as East Texas State University. Tuaau played in 23 games, with 86 total tackles, 34 tackles for loss, 17 sacks. In two years at Riverside C.C., he had 93 total tackles, 35 tackles for loss and 14 sacks. He was timed in 5.43 seconds in the 40-yard dash, with 24 repetitions in the bench press at 225 pounds, a 24.5-inch vertical jump.

The Chiefs have now signed 21 rookies to their roster.

    Charles Tuaau. Never met him. Know him. Samoan. Spent four years in Hawaii. He has three sisters. Two are about his size. The little one is only eight. Ten years from now she will kick all their butts.

    If I could put a team in the NFL it would be all Samoan. Some guys. Some girls. No wimpy QB. That little CB trying to cover my 250 pound, six four mother of four that can out run and can crunch you. So flat.

    Just call 911.

    God might have mercy.

    She will not.

    Tuaau now holds the Chiefs record for most consecutive vowels in a player name.

    It will be interesting to see of the draft class who can end up being a starter???

    Yes, David, he took the crown from Tony Moeaki and Dan Saleaumua. Dan still holds the record for most vowels, though. Great stuff.

    I do like the fact that every draft pick is under contract and no one is holding out.
    C’mon Justin, just sign it already.

    Go CHIEFS!

    Thanks, Big Jim, and it’s always a pleasure to see Dan Saleaumua featured in a blog post. I can just envision a bunch of young prospects at One Arrowhead Drive, queueing up to see if they can break the 4-vowel barrier.
