[Kansas City.com] Even though he wasn’t selected in this weekend’s NFL draft, Kansas linebacker Nick Reid has managed to find a new home.
Reid told The Star on Sunday evening that he’s expecting to sign a free-agent contract with the Chiefs.
“As far as I know, that’s what’s going to happen,” Reid said. “My agent is busy right now trying to work out the details, but the Chiefs were the first ones to call after the draft. That’s where I want to be.”
He entered the weekend hopeful he’d be picked in the draft, but no NFL team selected Reid, the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year. Reid was one of four KU players who saw his hopes of being drafted dashed.
“It was a long, boring, frustrating day,” Reid said. “I’m just glad it ended on a good note.”
