Chiefs Sign DT Alex Gubner Following Successful Minicamp Tryout

The Chiefs signed Gubner on Thursday

The Kansas City Chiefs made a roster move on Thursday, signing rookie defensive tackle Alex Gubner following a successful tryout at Mandatory Minicamp.

Gubner, who checks in at 6-foot-2 and 294 pounds, earned Big Sky "Defensive MVP" honors last season after logging 45 tackles, 9.5 tackles-for-loss and three sacks at the University of Montana.

Here's a quick note on Gubner from Montana's athletic department:

"Gubner was the straw that stirred Montana's defensive drink in 2023, helping UM to a historic defensive season. The Grizzly defense allowed just 108.5 yards per game rushing last season – the third fewest in the FCS and a Big Sky-low. UM also had the FCS's No. 3 third down defense in 2023, allowing teams to convert just 29 percent of the time."

In a corresponding move, the Chiefs waived rookie punter Ryan Rehkow.
