Warpaint Illustrated has learned that the Kansas City Chiefs have signed wide receiver/kick returner Eddie Drummond. He is the leading candidate to return kicks for the team this season.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers worked out Drummond earlier last week, but he turned down a better offer to play in Kansas City, signing a two-year contract.

Drummond, who spent the last five seasons with the Detroit Lions, made the Pro Bowl in 2004 following a season in which he returned two kickoffs and two punts for touchdowns. He is one of only three players in NFL history to accomplish that feat, along with former Chief Dante Hall and Bears kick returner Devin Hester.

In five years Drummond has six total return touchdowns, two on kickoffs and four on punts. For his career he averages 9.8 yards per punt return and 23.6 yards per kickoff return, with highs of 13.2 on punts and 26.6 on kickoffs (both in 2004). Last season he averaged 26 yards per kickoff return, but just 7.7 yards on punt returns.

With the departure of Hall, the Chiefs have been looking for a replacement returner all offseason. Drummond appears to fit the bill, and may make it tough for rookie Ean Randolph to make the 53-man roster.

No word on the financial terms of Drummondís contract. Stay tuned to Warpaint Illustrated for more news on this signing.

the fact that you go to the WPI forum should have you glowing red in the rep dept.

I thought Ean Randolph was doing good on punt returns. Of course, I didn't really see him do much otherwise.

He's a 100% lock to get cut now.

Hopefully he can return to his old form. If he can then it is a great signing.

He's a real hot commodity.

I love this signing.

He's just as good as Dante now, this didn't cost draft picks, just cash.

He should help with field position tremendously. Randolph is gone.
