KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Chiefs’ post-draft moves began Monday morning.

Two days after the NFL Draft, the Chiefs waived fullback Eric Kettani, his agent, Ed Brown, confirmed with ChiefsSpin.com.

Kettani originally joined the Chiefs on Dec. 24, 2013 after being signed to the practice squad. He signed a reserve/future deal on Jan. 6, 2014.

A native of Kirtland, Ohio, Kettani entered the league in 2009 as an undrafted free agent out of the Naval Academy with the New England Patriots, and then was placed on the reserve/military list.

The 6-foot-1, 233-pound fullback joined the Patriots practice squad in 2011 and part of the 2012 season before the Patriots released him in early September.

Kettani then joined the Washington Redskins practice squad on Sept. 11, 2012 before releasing him on Aug. 26, 2013.

With Kettani’s waiving, the Chiefs currently have two fullbacks on the roster in Anthony Sherman, last year’s starter, and Jordan Campbell, a converted linebacker.

The Chiefs haven’t confirmed the transaction.
