[KC Chiefs.com] The Chiefs announced today the signing of their top draft pick, Dontari Poe, meaning he should be in St. Joseph when training camp opens on Friday.
Poe, who is projected to be the team’s starting nose tackle, was the 11th player taken in the April draft. He’s a Memphis native who played well at the University of Memphis, but really made a name for himself with a standout showing at the NFL Scouting Combine.
Poe’s signing, the day before camp opens, puts added spotlight on the absence of veteran wide receiver Dwayne Bowe. The Chiefs made Bowe their franchise player this offseason, but he’s seeking a long-term contract. Whether their top pass-catcher will show up for camp on time, or at all, remains to be seen.
