After playing college football at South Dakota State, Bryan Witzmann went undrafted in the 2014 NFL Draft, signing with the Houston Texans after the draft.
His stint in Houston lasted just a few months, and for the next few seasons, Witzmann spent his time in the NFL as a journeyman. That journey ended last September, when the Chiefs claimed the offensive lineman off waivers.
He played the entire 2016 season with the Chiefs, only logging four offensive snaps and 49 on special teams. Even so, Kansas City saw enough from Witzmann to sign him to an extension on Thursday.
“He’s got some good length — strong guy, he’s smart,” Chiefs quarterback coach Matt Nagy said. “The thing with him is just getting some experience on that line and then communicating with those guys up front.”
The extension will keep Witzmann in Kansas City through the 2018 season.
