Chiefs sign Leon McQuay, Henry Mondeaux to reserve/future contracts

The Chiefs are continuing to stockpile players for the 90-man offseason roster.

They’ve officially brought back former 2017 sixth-round draft pick Leon McQuay on a reserve/future deal according to the NFL’s transaction report. The safety was one of only two remaining players from the 2018 practice squad who had yet to sign a deal with the team.

McQuay has started one game for the Chiefs. He was part of the team that defeated the Broncos in Week 17 of 2017, in what was Patrick Mahomes’ first start at quarterback. He recorded four tackles and one pass defended during that game. The ideal situation would be for the lightbulb to switch on for McQuay in year three, but it’s likely he remains a practice squad player for the time being.

The other player yet to sign is defensive back Chris Cooper who was the latest addition to the practice squad before the season had ended. It’s unclear if he’ll be back with the team.

The Chiefs also brought in a new face on reserve/future contract. Former Saints defensive tackle Henry Mondeaux will join the team. Mondeaux tried out for the Chiefs just four weeks ago, but opted to join the Saints practice squad again. With the season over, Mondeaux is opting for a change in scenery and a fresh start in Kansas City.
