Former Louisville wide receiver/cornerback Josh Bellamy has reportedly turned some heads at the Kansas City Chiefs’ OTA’s. Bellamy went undrafted, but signed a deal with the Chiefs immediately after the draft. The majority of undrafted free agents who sign with teams have a hard time making the final roster. However, Bellamy’s chances are looking pretty good.
“The Bellamy kid has some quickness, some size,” head coach Romeo Crennel said. “He’s a little inconsistent, and we still have to work with him. We’ll have to see how he progresses.”
The Kansas City Chiefs already have some solid depth at receiver with Dwayne Bowe, Steve Breaston, Jon Baldwin, Devon Wylie, Dexter McCluster, and Junior Hemingway returning. Bellamy may be more of a special teams player in the NFL at this point, but that doesn’t seem to bother him one bit.
“I love special teams,” Bellamy said. “I put it above offense and defense and I know that’s the fastest way to make the squad as a rookie, especially for an undrafted guy like me. I’m just trying to find a way to stick on this team.”
