April 20th and 21st passed unceremoniously for former Mizzou football player, Dwyane Blakely. The 6-4, 250-pound tight end wasn’t amongst the players taken in this year’s NFL draft. Blakely took it in stride. Earlier in the week he’d had discussions with the Chiefs and they expressed interest in the possibility of signing him to a free agent contract if he wasn’t taken. That’s what happened. Blakely has agreed to a two year free agent deal. It doesn’t guarantee him a spot on the roster, but it does give him a shot at making the team. If he makes the cut, St. Joseph native will get to work close to home. Blakely, who’s still taking classes at Mizzou, will spend the summer getting into better shape. In his career in Columbia, Dwayne Blakely caught 69 passes for 767 yards and ten touchdowns. He averaged just over eleven yards per catch.
