One of the remaining free agents for the Kansas City Chiefs is getting a tryout with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this weekend.

Former Chiefs CB Antonio Hamilton is among the veteran players around the league that earned a tryout during a rookie minicamp. Many teams are using those slots on undrafted free agents, but according to The Athletic’s Greg Auman, the Buccaneers are using all five allowed tryout spots on veteran players.

The 28-year-old cornerback was the first free agent from outside of the organization that the Chiefs signed during the 2020 free agency period. He faced off against the Buccaneers twice last season, once during the regular season and once again during Super Bowl LV.

Hamilton is a player that the Chiefs liked for his special teams ability. Following the 2019 NFL season, he was one of the highest-graded gunners in the league. He played the second-most special teams snaps for Kansas City in 2020 with 330 snaps, which was good for just under 75% of the total special teams snaps played by the team.

Obviously, Hamilton isn’t in the Chiefs’ plans for 2021 or he probably would have been re-signed by now. Should he make the 90-man roster after his tryout, he could prove to be a valuable asset for a Tampa Bay team that is looking to field another Super Bowl-winning team.
