It's a homecoming of sorts for the former Missouri Tigers tight end Martin Rucker, who is reportedly among the tryout players this offseason looking to get on the Kansas City Chiefs' roster.
Among tryout players is former Missouri tight end Martin Rucker. He was drafted by Cleveland in '08 when Browns were coached by Crennel— Adam Teicher (@adamteicher) May 11, 2012
While the Browns did draft Rucker in 08, he was waived by the team just a year later. Since then, he's spent his time toiling in obscurity, sometimes on the practice squads of the Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles and Jacksonville Jaguars.
Rucker was an All-American tight end at Missouri in 2007. He ended his college career with over 200 receptions, 2175 yards, and 18 touchdowns.
Rucker is from St. Joseph where he attended Benton High School.
