Louis Rees-Zammit: Former Wales rugby union wing joins Kansas City Chiefs

Date:

Rees-Zammit signed a three-year contract with the Chiefs – typifying the faith shown in the Welshman by Andy Reid’s team as IPP players aren’t guaranteed any length of contract.

He has also been given a guaranteed salary in addition to a signing bonus.

He has targeted a hybrid role playing at both wide receiver and running back, and his next task will be to try to earn a regular-season roster spot.

He was one of 16 players to take part in the 2024 IPP, a 10-week crash course designed to teach the required skills to succeed in the NFL.

The ex-Gloucester player – who has won 32 caps for Wales, scoring 14 tries – showcased his skills at University of South Florida’s Pro Day earlier this month, with scouts from all 32 NFL teams in attendance.

While he did not test at an extremely high level in all metrics, his pace was impressive and up to the standard of NFL wide receivers.

Now with the Chiefs, Rees-Zammit will be competing with the rest of the off-season squad to earn a place on Kansas City’s final 53-man active roster for the 2024 season, which begins in September.

If he does not make it, Rees-Zammit is likely to spend his first season on Kansas City’s practice squad.
