Former BYU punter Ryan Rehkow to sign with Chiefs

The positions usually ignored in the NFL draft are kicker, punter and long snapper. The high-quality specialists available following the draft are at a premium as every team looks for diamonds in the rough.

Announced late Saturday night via the BYU Football X account, the Kansas City Chiefs are signing punter Ryan Rehkow. Rehkow is a former Big 12 Punter of the Year known for having a big leg throughout college. He recorded a 42 percent inside-20 rate in his four seasons at BYU. In 2023, he had 68 punts, nine of which went as far as 60 yards.

The Chiefs struck gold by signing undrafted free agent Tommy Townsend a few seasons ago as he eventually became a first-team All-Pro. Townsend signed with the Houston Texans at the start of the league year, opening the door for a possible competition with Kansas City’s recently signed punter Matt Araiza.
