Chiefs Sign Eddie Drummond
Drummond, who spent the last five seasons with the Detroit Lions, made the Pro Bowl in 2004 following a season in which he returned two kickoffs and two punts for touchdowns. He is one of only three players in NFL history to accomplish that feat, along with former Chief Dante Hall and Bears kick returner Devin Hester.
In five years Drummond has six total return touchdowns, two on kickoffs and four on punts. For his career he averages 9.8 yards per punt return and 23.6 yards per kickoff return, with highs of 13.2 on punts and 26.6 on kickoffs (both in 2004). Last season he averaged 26 yards per kickoff return, but just 7.7 yards on punt returns.
With the departure of Hall, the Chiefs have been looking for a replacement returner all offseason. Drummond appears to fit the bill, and may make it tough for rookie Ean Randolph to make the 53-man roster.
No word on the financial terms of Drummond's contract yet. Stay tuned to Warpaint Illustrated for more news on this signing.
