Chiefs reach agreements with Engram, Beisel

The Chiefs have agreed to terms with three free agents: wide receiver Bobby Engram, linebacker Monty Beisel and wide receiver Terrance Copper.

Engram has played in the league for 13 years for the Bears and Seahawks. Although he’s 36 years old, the Chiefs hope he can provide some stability at a position where they need some help. Engram set the Seahawks’ single-season record for pass receptions in 2007, and set career highs with 94 receptions and 1,147 receiving yards.

Beisel, a fourth-round draft pick by the Chiefs in 2001 out of Kansas State, returns after stints with the Patriots and Cardinals. He played little for the Chiefs except on special teams until the 2004 season, when injuries pushed him into the lineup. The Chiefs then allowed him to become an unrestricted free agent, and he signed with New England in 2005.

Copper, who has played for the Cowboys, Saints and Ravens, has had five starts in his five-year NFL career.
