KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Four players from their tryouts during rookie minicamp caught the Chiefs' attention and landed spots on the 90-man roster.

Wide receiver Rashard Davis, running back Marcus Marshall, cornerback Herb Miller and safety Andrew Soroh all signed free-agent deals with the club falling the minicamp, according to the league's transaction report.

The club cleared room for the quartet of additions by waiving safety Leon McQuay and three rookie free agents signed last week: wide receivers Andre Lindsey and Jamire Jordan along with cornerback Dakari Monroe.

Rashard Davis is a first-year player from James Madison who spent parts of the last two seasons with Philadelphia and Oakland. He appeared in four preseason games last, pulling in four catches for 51 yards and a touchdown. The 5-9, 175-pound Davis entered the league as an undrafted free agent in 2017 and was on the Eagles' practice squad during their Super Bowl run. He earned FCS All-American honors at James Madison, catching 42 passes for 530 yards and three touchdowns as a senior while averaging 28.4 yards on kick returns.

Marshall, another James Madison product, rushed for 1,296 during the past two seasons with 17 touchdowns. He also caught 22 passes for 150 yards and a touchdown. The 5-9, 179-pound Marshall posted a 4.52 40-yard time at his pro day.

Miller, a 6-2, 190-pound cornerback from Florida Atlantic, played just seven games last season while picking up 13 tackles as a nickel back last season. During his junior year, opponents targeted Miller just once per every 12.3 pass attempts, according to Pro Football Focus.

Soroh, Miller's teammate at Florida Atlantic, played linebacker for the team last season, but the Chiefs project him as a strong safety. The 6-2, 210- pound Soroh picked up 176 tackles during his college career with 11.5 for a loss and three interceptions.

McQuay came to Kansas City as a sixth-round pick in the 2017 draft. He spent most of last season on the club's practice squad. He saw action in one game as a rookie, collecting four combined tackles and breaking up a pass.

The Chiefs waived Jordan with an injury designation; head coach Andy Reid didn't mention Jordan's injury during his minicamp press conference Monday.
