Chiefs Sign Rookie Wide Receiver Ty Scott

The Chiefs signed Scott following wide receiver John Ross’ retirement

The Kansas City Chiefs made a roster move this week, placing wide receiver John Ross on the Reserve/Retired list while signing rookie wide receiver Ty Scott in his place.

A local product from Missouri State University, Scott checks in at 6-foot-1 and 199 pounds. He spent the first three seasons of his career at Central Michigan before transferring to Missouri State in 2021, where he went on to catch 66 passes for 1,110 yards and eight touchdowns that year. Scott then hauled in 48 catches for 674 yards and five touchdowns this past season. Primarily an outside receiver for the Bears, Scott lined up on the outside on 75 percent of his offensive snaps in 2022.

This marks Scott's second stint with the Chiefs, as he originally signed with Kansas City as an undrafted free agent in May. Scott was waived a few weeks later, but now with training camp underway, the former Missouri State star has another opportunity to prove himself.
