KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Chiefs signed wide receiver Corbin Louks to a reserve/future contract, according to Friday’s NFL Transactions report.

The 6-0, 200-pound Louks originally signed with the Chiefs 10-man practice on Dec. 16, 2014 where he finished the season.

Louks, who played quarterback at Utah and wide receiver at Nevada, previously spent time with the Seattle Seahawks before joining the Chiefs.

The Chiefs have now signed 16 total players to a reserve/future contract since the end of the regular season.

A reserve/future contract is signed with a free-agent player who was not on a team’s active roster when the regular season ended.

Players are signed with a view to the upcoming season once the league’s calendar year kicks off.

Teams are allowed a maximum of 90 players on the offseason roster.

The players signed so far to reserve/future contracts are: Louks, tight end Brandon Barden, wide receiver Armon Binns, defensive lineman Hebron Fangupo, offensive lineman Curtis Feight, guard Ricky Henry, long snapper Brandon Hartson, long snapper Jorgen Hus, linebacker JoJo Dickson, cornerback Deji Olatoye, offensive lineman Jarrod Pughsley, tight end Adam Schiltz, offensive tackle Derek Sherrod, running back Spencer Ware, wide receiver Fred Williams and defensive lineman Jerel Worthy.

All but four of the players spent time on the Chiefs practice squad in 2014. The players who didn’t are Hartson, Hus, Sherrod and Ware.

Sherrod is a former first-round pick (32nd overall) of the Green Bay Packers in the 2011 NFL Draft.
