Chiefs Sign WR Kekoa Crawford Following Successful Minicamp Tryout

The Kansas City Chiefs made an addition to their wide receiver corps last Thursday with the signing of Kekoa Crawford, who attended last week's mandatory minicamp on a tryout basis.

Crawford, who checks in at 6-foot-1 and 195 pounds, also participated in the Chiefs' rookie minicamp last month. The 25-year-old Crawford tallied 40 receptions for 513 yards at the University of California in 2021, including 14 catches of at least 15 yards. It was a strong finish to a collegiate career that began at the University of Michigan (2016-17) before ending at Cal (2019-21).

The speedy Crawford recorded a 4.42-second 40-yard dash at Cal's pro day last offseason, and while he didn't hear his name called during the 2022 NFL Draft, Crawford signed with the Indianapolis Colts shortly afterward as an undrafted free agent. He was later released the day before the Colts began training camp, however, and is still seeking his first game action as a professional.

In order to make room for Crawford on the active roster, the Chiefs waived rookie cornerback Anthony Witherstone.

Crawford will now have an opportunity to show what he can do when the Chiefs head to training camp next month.
