Chiefs sign third-round picks

The Chiefs’ list of unsigned draft picks continues to dwindle, but their three top picks remain without a contract.

Running back Jamaal Charles and tight end Brad Cottam, both third-round picks, agreed to contract terms today. But both first-round picks, defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey and offensive lineman Branden Albert, as well as second-round cornerback Brandon Flowers, were still unsigned.

Seventh-round tight end Michael Merritt also was without a contract.

Time remaining before the start of training camp is also dwindling. The Chiefs leave Thursday for camp at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls. The first practice is Friday.
