Never heard of him. Probably a practice squad guy.

The Kansas City Chiefs announced on Friday that the club has agreed to terms with S Jon McGraw and LB Darrell Robertson.

He has recorded 167 tackles (123 solo), four INTs for four yards, 12 passes defensed, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries. He also has 99 special teams tackles to go with a fumble recovery and forced fumble on special teams. McGraw has seen action in four postseason contests, registering 11 tackles (eight solo) and four special teams stops. He originally entered the NFL as a second-round draft pick (57th overall) of the Jets in the 2002 NFL Draft. McGraw played in 43 games (19 starts) at Kansas State, finishing his collegiate career with 184 tackles (138 solo), 16.0 tackles for loss, 3.0 sacks, 17 passes defensed and nine interceptions. He prepped at Riley County High School in Manhattan, Kansas.

Robertson (6-4, 246) spent time on the New England practice squad in 2008. He originally entered the NFL in 2008 as a rookie free agent with Dallas. He played in two games for the Edmonton Eskimos of the Canadian Football League a year ago, recording six tackles. He played in 50 games at Georgia Tech, recording 108 tackles, 11.5 sacks, 25.0 tackles for loss and 26 QB pressures. Robertson was a four-year letterman at Jonesboro High School, in Jonesboro, Georgia.

Why?

I think it's mean that the Chiefs forced him to resign. He has to make a living, too.

I drafted Robertson for the Cards last year in the CP mock, he's a classic DE/OLB tweener that had a pretty good senior year at Georgia Tech. Worth a look IMO.

Can't say I've very excited about McGraw though.

Seems like we are hellbent on having good special teams.

Too bad having good defense doesn't go along with that.

It's actually a Belichickian approach -- start rebuilding with special teams. It's easier than building a good offense/defense, and with good special teams you can help BOTH the offense and defnse with field position.

It can easily help you steal a game or three during a season.

We had a pretty good ST unit not so long ago.
It's definitely important.

Yep, McGraw is a pretty good special teamer. I am all for that. Him playing D, not really for that though.

Hmmm...makes me think the Chiefs might be drafting a kicker this year??

There's no guarantee McGraw is going to be on the roster come September anyway.

First free agent signing should be Louie Sakoda - if the Chiefs don't pick him up in the latter rounds of the draft. From 50 and in, he's as automatic and cool as anyone I've ever seen. Maybe even a better punter than field goal kicker too. I like Colquitt a ton, but two roster spots are two roster spots.

I always wondered if Priefer was maybe unfairly outcast as a poor special teams coach, when in fact maybe the team was taking good players away from him in the attempt to build a complete roster. A few names immediately come to mind. Recently, it's Brackenridge and Patterson--two below average players who happened to be exceptional special teamers. I also remember during the Vermeil years, there were a ton of useless players who were tremendous at special teams: Stills, Caver, Bartee, Blaylock, Boerigter. These were guys that were cut because we were so shallow in talent that we had to make sure every roster spots was held by a player who might be able to contribute right away.

Hard to tell.

I also wondered if Dante Hall completely forgot how to be an explosive returnman or if all the turnover on ST affected our return game.

I just wanna see some stability there. Whatever that looks like.

I disagree. If special teams are good, you pin the opponent deep, and then your d gives up a clock chompin td drive, there is no benefit. If special teams are good, you start off with great field position. Then you go three and out in two minutes, rinse and repeat. But you say this is Belicheckian? Has he done this and had it work? Hope I dont sound sarcastic, not tryin to be. Just curious

The odds are on the side of the defense who's got to protect 90 yards of field to defend the win as well as they are on the offense who's got a short field to drive to win. IMO, smart move.

If he is good enough for the Eskimos he is good enough for the Chiefs.

I agree. I think he'll be in the mix at OLB. He's an athletic tweener like you said and those guys work well in the 3-4.

He was good enough for someone to make a highlights package:

He's only 22 years old and actually has a shot to make our team. I like the move.
