KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- The Kansas City Chiefs have signed kicker Ryan Succop, one of the team's three seventh-round draft picks.
Succop, taken with the 256th overall pick in last month's NFL draft, played 50 games in four seasons at South Carolina, hitting 71 percent of his field goals with a long of 55 yards. He hit 66 percent his senior season and converted all 30 of his PATs.
The 6-foot-2 Succop worked out with the Chiefs during offseason practices and is expected to compete with second-year kicker Connor Barth for the starting job.
Succop is the first of Kansas City's eight 2009 draft picks to sign. Terms of Tuesday's deal were not disclosed.
