On Tuesday afternoon the Chiefs announced the signing of 5th-round selection S Kendrick Lewis, the first of their seven 2010 draft choices to ink a contract.
Lewis was the 136th player selected in April’s NFL Draft, joining the Chiefs out of the University of Mississippi. The Louisiana native spent a lot of time with the team’s No. 1 defense at free safety during the spring practices. He should compete for playing time if not a starting spot when training camp opens in a month.
Reportedly it’s a three-year deal for $1.37 million with a signing bonus in the $155,000 range.
Lewis was represented by James “Bus” Cook out of Hattiesburg, Mississippi. Cook is better known as the agent for QB Brett Favre.
