Grayson headed to Kansas City

Davon Grayson will sign with the Kansas City Chiefs after a deal with the New York Giants failed to materialize.

The former King’s Fork High School standout went undrafted during the 2018 NFL Draft. From there, Grayson had his choice of teams as a priority free agent. It was reported that he had reached an agreement with the Giants, but things never materialized, and he was back to being a priority free agent.

The second time around, Grayson decided to sign with the Chiefs. The Chiefs had their eye on Grayson for a while and had shown interest in him during the draft process. At the NFL Combine, he met with the team, and they let him know he identified with what the team was looking for.

“I have talked to the Chiefs,” Grayson said to a reporter. “They explained everything to me, from the quarterback situation that they’ve got going on, that they’ve identified a specific type of offensive skill sets that they want to add to the team. They told me I fit the bill. Hopefully, they’ll give me an opportunity.”

Grayson hopes his versatility can help him earn a spot on the Chiefs’ final roster when training camp is up. At East Carolina University, he played multiple receiver positions, and he hopes that can help him at the next level. He believes with his skill set, it will be easy for him to come in and do whatever a team needs him to do.
