Chiefs Sign McCluster, Arenas, and Possibly Asamoah

From the Kansas City Star:

Receiver Dexter McCluster and nickel back Javier Arenas signed their contracts, ensuring they will be able to participate when the Chiefs begin training camp Friday at Missouri Western State University in St. Joseph.

Six of the Chiefs’ seven draft picks are under contract. Still unsigned is safety Eric Berry of Tennessee, the first-round pick. The Chiefs have yet to announce that third-round guard Jon Asamoah has agreed to terms, but the NFL’s transactions report shows he has signed his contract.

McCluster will be used as the slot receiver when the Chiefs use their three- and four-receiver formations. Arenas is first in line to be the regular nickel back. Both players will be at or near the front of the line of candidates to become the kickoff and punt return specialists.

The Chiefs also signed tight end Leroy Banks. Banks spent some time practicing with the Chiefs during the off-season before being released. He is a rookie from Southern Mississippi.
