Braverman was signed to Kansas City's practice squad last week but the Chiefs signing him to a reserve/future contract ensures he'll remain under team control throughout the offseason. The 2016 seventh-rounder possesses a 4.47 40-yard dash time but his diminutive size (5-foot-10, 177 pounds) could hold him back.
Braverman was added to the Chiefs' practice squad Tuesday, Terez A. Paylor of the Kansas City Star reports.
Braverman spent much of his rookie campaign on the Bears' practice squad in 2016, where he also spent three games on the team's active roster. He did not make an appearance throughout the 2017 regular season, however.
Braverman was waived by the Bears on Saturday.
Braverman didn't have a reception in the three games he played in his rookie campaign last season. His preseason wasn't impressive enough to keep him around, and we expect to see him on the practice squad like he was in 2016.
Braverman (undisclosed) is expected to play in Saturday's preseason game against the Cardinals.
Braverman wasn't available to play in last week's preseason opener, so he'll need to perform well in these final three exhibitions in order to make the final roster.
Braverman (undisclosed) isn't expected to play in Thursday's preseason opener against the Broncos, Adam Hoge of WGN Radio reports.
Though Braverman underwent offseason knee surgery in January, according to Mark Potash of the Chicago Sun-Times, it isn't clear if he's still in recovery.
