After not getting signed as an undrafted free agent, former BYU Center Tejan Koroma made the most of a rookie mini camp invite as the Kansas City Chiefs signed Koroma. Koroma participated in the Chiefs rookie minicamp over the weekend.
The Chiefs are signing former BYU center Tejan Koroma, per a source. Was in minicamp as a tryout player and will get a continued shot to impress— Terez A. Paylor (@TerezPaylor) May 7, 2018
The signing does not guarantee Koroma will make make the 53-man roster, but he makes the initial 90-man roster and will get a chance to compete in training camp and the preseason. Tejan joins fellow BYU players Jonah Trinnaman, Micah Hannemann and Tomasi Lauilie as undrafted rookies who have signed a contract.
With offensive line one of the thinner positions of depth for the Chiefs, Tejan will get a shot to impress coaches in hopes of earning a roster spot.
Chiefs adding another college free agent to the roster, BYU center Tejan Koroma, per league source. Chiefs thin at offensive line and need depth at center for OTAs and camp.— Matt Derrick (@mattderrick) May 7, 2018
Tejan will look to join fellow BYU alumnus Daniel Sorensen on the Chiefs. And, of course, we’d like to give a special thank you to Andy Reid for giving Tejan a shot.
Good luck to Tejan as he battles to make the Chiefs roster!
