Verran Tucker Signs With AFL's Spokane Shock

Former Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Verran Tucker has signed on with the AFL's Spokane Shock. Tucker brings 19 games of NFL experience to the Shock which is a franchise best for the club.

During the 2010 season, Tucker caught six passes for 114 yards in 11 games with the Chiefs and was also a contributor on special teams recording 14 tackles.

As an Arena League player, Spokane general manager Ryan Rigmaiden sees Tucker as a player with "big upside" given his NFL experience.

"Verran has a big upside, especially with this NFL-experience," General Manager Ryan Rigmaiden explained. "He has great hands and runs very efficient routes. He is a great addition to any roster, we are just happy to have him here in Spokane."

Tucker also had a stint with the Dallas Cowboys before being released and picked up by the Chiefs. During college he was a solid wide receiver option at Cal where he totaled 50 receptions, 815 yards and four touchdowns in 23 games.
