Chiefs Sign First AAF Player Since League Folded in CB Keith Reaser

Chiefs Sign First AAF Player Since League Folded in CB Keith Reaser

The AAF announced earlier Thursday that league players now could sign with NFL teams.

The 29-year-old Ross, who recorded 583 yards and seven touchdowns on 36 receptions with the Hotshots, went undrafted in the 2013 draft out of Arizona State. Reaser joined the Chiefs midway through 2017 and played in one regular-season game, in December 2017.

Reaser, a defensive back, signed with his former team, the Kansas City Chiefs, according to ESPN reports, while Adam Schefter reported that Ross had inked a deal with the Carolina Panthers.

After getting cut from the Arizona Cardinals in August, wide receiver Rashad Ross made his way to the Alliance of American Football. Ross had one receiving touchdown and a kickoff return for a touchdown during the 2015 season.

Reaser's progress with the Chiefs was derailed by a quad injury during 2018 training camp, and it ultimately led him to be placed on IR.

He played in just two games with the Redskins that season before being waived and signed by the Chicago Bears, where he also appeared in two contests.

As an National Football League player, he has nine receptions for 192 yards and one touchdown and 34 kick returns, one of which he took to the house.

Even still, those eight games were enough for some player to ball out and prove that they deserve another shot at playing in the NFL.
