The Chiefs signed Dieter to the practice squad Thursday. Deiter has periodically jumped between Kansas City's active roster and practice squad for two seasons. He'll wait in the wings for another special-teams role to open up with the team.
The Chiefs waived Dieter on Tuesday, per the league's official transactions log. Dieter joined Kansas City's 53-man roster Nov. 18. He appeared in two games with the team but was not targeted, playing six snaps on offense and 17 snaps on special teams. Assuming the 26-year-old goes unclaimed on waivers, he could be a candidate to resurface in Kansas City at some point when another special-teams role becomes available.
Dieter was promoted to the Chiefs' 53-man roster Monday, Sam McDowell of The Kansas City Star reports. DE Emmanuel Ogbah (pectoral) was placed on injured reserve, opening space for Dieter to be promoted from the team's practice squad. The 26-year-old appeared in four games for Kansas City last season and caught one of three targets for 22 yards.
Dieter (back) signed with the Chiefs' practice squad Tuesday, Sam McDowell of The Kansas City Star reports. Dieter's back injury kept him from making the Chiefs' final roster, but they're happy to give him another shot to prove his worth on the practice squad. The 26-year-old wideout will wait in the wings for a special-teams role to open ahead of him.
The Chiefs waived Dieter (undisclosed) with an injury settlement Saturday, Charles Goldman of USA Today reports. Dieter has been managing an undisclosed injury since the beginning of training camp. The second-year pro will need to get fully healthy before looking to catch on with another team.
