The Kansas City Chiefs are holding onto Gehrig Dieter.

The former Alabama wide receiver signed a reserve/futures contract with the team on Friday. Reserve/futures deals are for players not on the active roster. The contracts are often for league minimum and can be signed ahead of the 2021 operating year without counting against the club’s current salary cap.

Dieter will be in a familiar situation: competing for a spot on the Chiefs’ active roster. Kansas City signed Dieter as an undrafted free agent in May 2017. He has spent his entire NFL career with the Chiefs, bouncing between the practice squad and active roster.

Over the past three seasons (2018-20), Dieter has played in 10 games for the Chiefs, recording 2 catches for 32 yards.

Dieter transferred to Alabama for the 2016 season. He played in 13 games, recording 15 catches for 214 yards and 4 touchdowns.
