The Kansas City Chiefs announced on Thursday that the club has signed fullback Anthony Sherman.
"We are happy we were able to keep Anthony in a Chiefs uniform," Chiefs GM Brett Veach said. "He's blocked for three 1,000-yard rushers in his career and has been a key component for us on special teams. His versatility will continue to benefit us." Sherman (5-10, 242) has played in 108 games (33 starts) in seven NFL seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs (2013-17) and Arizona Cardinals (2011-12). His career numbers include 55 catches for 429 yards (7.8 avg.) with two receiving touchdowns. On the ground, he owns 20 carries for 54 yards with one touchdown. Sherman served as the lead blocker for rookie RB Kareem Hunt last year. Hunt earned Pro Bowl honors and won the NFL's rushing title with 1,327 yards. In 2013, Sherman helped pave the way for RB Jamaal Charles who racked up 1,287 rushing yards. While in Arizona he led RB Beanie Wells to his first career 1,000-yard season. The North Attleboro, Mass., native originally entered the NFL as a fifth-round pick (136th overall) of the Arizona Cardinals in the 2011 NFL Draft. He played collegiately at Connecticut.
