Former UGA player Commings signs with Chiefs

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City Chiefs have signed safety and former Georgia player Sanders Commings, the fifth of their eight draft choices to agree to terms on a contract.

Commings was the Chiefs’ fifth-round draft pick. He played primarily cornerback in college, starting 35 games and making 154 tackles. But he’s been playing safety for the Chiefs during their first two weeks of organized team activities.

The Chiefs selected Commings, who was once drafted by the Arizona Diamondbacks, despite a domestic violence charge that resulted in a suspension last season. The signing was announced Thursday.

The only remaining draft picks yet to sign with the Chiefs are offensive tackle Eric Fisher, their first overall pick, third-round pick Travis Kelce and fourth-round pick Nico Johnson.
