Chiefs agree to terms with four players

July 27, 2007


— The Kansas City Chiefs agreed to contracts with four players Thursday, including signing three more of this year's draft picks.

The Chiefs agreed to a one-year contract with offensive lineman Kyle Turley, who rejoins the team after being released in March.

Turley, a former Pro Bowler, attempted a comeback last year after a two-year absence brought on by back surgery. The back bothered him in the last half of the season, and he started only seven games.

Turley has started 102 games during his career for New Orleans, St. Louis and Kansas City.

The Chiefs also signed a four-year contract with its second-round draft pick, defensive lineman Claude McBride, and three-year contracts with third-round pick DeMarcus Tyler, a defensive lineman from North Carolina State, and sixth-round pick Herb Taylor, a tackle from Texas Christian University.

The team has now signed five of its seven draft picks. The Chiefs have yet to reach deals with first-round pick Dwayne Bowe, a wide receiver from LSU, and fifth-round selection Justin Medlock, a kicker from UCLA.
