Kiki Gonzalez today became the third Zip to latch on with an NFL team this season, signing a two-year deal with the Kansas City Chiefs.
He still could wind up on the practice squad, but this is great news for a guy who only made 31 tackles his senior year. If you remember, Chase Blackburn signed a similar contract two years ago and worked his way to a starting linebacker job with the New York Giants.
Luke Getsy will try to win a backup position to San Francisco quarterback Alex Smith. Andy Alleman, a third-round pick of the New Orleans Saints, has a good chance for playing time at guard.
