The Kansas City Chiefs announced Monday they've agreed to terms with former WKU defensive back Bobby Sippio on a two-year contract and have added him to their active roster for Sunday game at Chicago.
The team originally signed the now-wide receiver last month, but cut him following its final preseason game and signed him to the practice squad for the start to the season.
Sippio moves to the active roster to replace Eddie Kennison, who injured his hamstring in the Chiefs' season-opening loss at Houston Sunday.
Sippio impressed Chiefs officials during training camp, including a two-catch, 28 yard performance in the team's final preseason game at St. Louis. But when the team desired to sign a third quarterback to back up starter Damon Huard and second-stringer Brodie Croyle.
Sippio's the reigning Arena Football League touchdown leader, scoring 56 times for the Chicago Rush in 2007 despite missing nearly four games due to injury. He's also WKU's career leader in interceptions, recording 19 thefts in his career on the Hill (1999-2001). That includes a single-season record 10 picks in 2000.
