Chiefs Sign Engram, Two Other Veterans

Bill Pollock at has reported that the Kansas City Chiefs have added to the list of veterans they have signed to add to their inexperienced roster, agreeing to a deal with WR Bobby Engram, as well as receiver Terrence Cooper and linebacker Monty Beisel.

Engram had spent the last eight seasons with the Seattle Seahawks, where he had six catches for 70 yards in their Superbowl XL defeat and set a franchise record for single-season receptions with 94 in 2007. He provides another target for Matt Cassel, who already had future Hall-of-Famer Tony Gonzalez and WR Dwayne Bowe.

I could not find any football highlights from Engram over the web, but I did find this video of him accepting the Presidents’ Volunteer Service Award in 2008. A devout Christian and noted philanthropist, Engram volunteers for several non-profit organizations. He founded the Bobby Engram Foundation, which “strives to provide hope, courage and opportunity to underprivileged children who suffer from chronic pain that affects their lives physically or emotionally,”

For once, a productive wide receiver that can actually be a role model! Though the Seahawks may have gotten a better receiver this off-season in T.J. Houshmanzadeh, they may never have a better person on their team.
