The Chiefs begin a crucial offseason by keeping the rights to six practice squad players.

While uncertainty reigns over the head coaching job and the future of interim coach Romeo Crennel, the Kansas City Chiefs signed six of their practice squad players to futures contracts on Tuesday: Fullback Shane Bannon, offensive lineman Rob Bruggeman, linebacker Caleb Campbell, wide receiver Jamar Newsome, defensive lineman Luke Patterson and defensive tackle Anthony Toribio.

Of the six, only Bannon is a Kansas City draft pick (2011, seventh round), but never saw action on the field, and was injured midseason. Patterson entered the Chiefs organization directly as a rookie free agent in 2011, and spent the entire season on the practice squad. Toribio is the most recognizable name by virtue of playing time. The Carson-Newman product played in five games at defensive tackle for the Chiefs in 2010, and one in 2009.
