Apparently the vacancy at GM won't keep the Chiefs from making some moves, as they made their first signings of the offseason Tuesday, inking four young players.

Guard Brian De La Puente, guard Edwin Harrison, defensive tackle T.J. Jackson, and running back Dantrell Savage have agreed to terms on two-year deals with Kansas City. All four players spent time with the Chiefs in 2008, be it on the practice squad or active roster.

De La Puente joined the Chiefs when they signed him off waivers. He entered the NFL with the San Francisco 49ers as an undrafted rookie free agent last offseason. De La Puente spent seven weeks on KC's active roster, but finished the season on the practice squad. He was an all-Pac 10 performer at Cal in 2007.

Harrison joined the Chiefs as a rookie free agent in 2008, and attended training camp in River Falls. He was cut before the season and spent the rest of the 2008 campaign on KC's practice squad. Harrison played right tackle during his time as a Colorado Buffalo.

Jackson originally entered the NFL as a rookie free agent in 2006 with the Atlanta Falcons. He came to Kansas City in 2007, spending that entire season on the practice squad. Jackson saw action in four games for the Chiefs this season, registering two tackles. He was an all-SEC performer at Auburn.

Savage was one of the Chiefs training camp stars in River Falls in 2008. He came to Kansas City as an undrafted rookie free agent last offseason, and registered 15 carries this season for 53 yards. Savage also filled in on special teams, returning 26 kickoffs and eight punts. Savage played his college ball at Oklahoma State.
