The Kansas City Chiefs have reportedly signed 2017 first-round pick Taco Charlton, who cleared waivers earlier Friday.
Charlton, a first-round pick of the Dallas Cowboys in 2017, was most recently with the Miami Dolphins after being claimed in September, before being released on Thursday.
Charlton’s career so far has clearly not lived up to his first-round billing, as he heads to his third team in four seasons. However, highly touted out of Michigan, the Chiefs look to add Charlton to an uncertain group at defensive end. With Tanoh Kpassagnon and Breeland Speaks currently slotted behind Frank Clark and Alex Okafor, a potential Charlton reclamation project seems similar to Brett Veach’s strategy with former Browns and current Dolphins DE Emmanuel Ogbah, who was the 32nd overall pick in 2016.
