Wyatt Miller signs with KC
The Chiefs picked up UCF alum Wyatt Miller to hopefully help out with protecting Patrick Mahomes. Wyatt has bounced around some practice squads but hasn’t seen a regular season start yet. Hopefully that will change this year.

Former Seattle LB Shaquem Griffin is visiting the Broncos today, per source. He will be one of several players participating in minicamp on a tryout basis.
Remarkable story. Lost his left hand when he was 4. His only NFL start was against Broncos in 2018 opener. #9sports
Don’t buy that Shaquem Griffin Jags jersey just yet.
