Central Missouri running back LaVance Taylor signed a deal with the Kansas City Chiefs just one day after tweeting his highlight tape to several NFL teams, Jerry Jones and Deon Sanders. The team announced the deal on Thursday.
Last season, Taylor rushed for 1,918 yards and 15 touchdowns before going undrafted. He hopes to follow in the footsteps of other successful Division II players in the NFL such as Khiry Robinson, Joique Bell and Chris Ivory.
Taylor will fill in for rookie running back Keshawn Hill, who was the last healthy running back in camp before injuring his hamstring.
Taylor shared a photo on Instagram indicating that he will wear No. 32 for the Chiefs in training camp.
