Report: Chiefs Signing QB Chris Oladokun To Practice Squad

Steelers Oladokun

The Kansas City Chiefs are signing former Pittsburgh Steelers’ seventh-round pick QB Chris Oladokun to their practice squad, according to Doug Kyed, who tweeted the news moments ago.

Oladokun was the second of two quarterback’s the Steelers drafted this summer after spending a first-round pick on Kenny Pickett. Oladokun was stuck as the team’s #4 QB all summer, rarely seeing the field, and only logging 19 total training camp reps. Those came over the final two public practices during scout team sessions. He did not play in the preseason.

He was released last week as the team trimmed their roster down from 85 to 80. Oladokun visited the Chiefs yesterday and has now signed onto their practice squad. He’ll sit behind Patrick Mahomes and veteran Chad Henne.

Oladokun played at two different colleges, USF and Samford before finishing his career up at South Dakota State. Last year, he threw 25 touchdowns for the Jackrabbits as he helped lead the team into the FCS playoffs.
