Dieter signed a contract with the Chiefs on Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
Analysis: Dieter has spent the last two seasons bumping between Kansas City's active roster and practice squad, and he'll now benefit from another offseason to develop in the team's system. He appeared in two regular-season games with the Chiefs in 2019 but was held without a target.
The Chiefs signed Dieter to the practice squad Thursday.
Analysis: Deiter has periodically jumped between Kansas City's active roster and practice squad for two seasons. He'll wait in the wings for another special-teams role to open up with the team.
The Chiefs waived Dieter on Tuesday, per the league's official transactions log.
Analysis: Dieter joined Kansas City's 53-man roster Nov. 18. He appeared in two games with the team but was not targeted, playing six snaps on offense and 17 snaps on special teams. Assuming the 26-year-old goes unclaimed on waivers, he could be a candidate to resurface in Kansas City at some point when another special-teams role becomes available.
Dieter was promoted to the Chiefs' 53-man roster Monday, Sam McDowell of The Kansas City Star reports.
Analysis: DE Emmanuel Ogbah (pectoral) was placed on injured reserve, opening space for Dieter to be promoted from the team's practice squad. The 26-year-old appeared in four games for Kansas City last season and caught one of three targets for 22 yards.
Dieter (back) signed with the Chiefs' practice squad Tuesday, Sam McDowell of The Kansas City Star reports.
Analysis: Dieter's back injury kept him from making the Chiefs' final roster, but they're happy to give him another shot to prove his worth on the practice squad. The 26-year-old wideout will wait in the wings for a special-teams role to open ahead of him.
The Chiefs waived/injured Dieter (undisclosed) with an injury settlement Saturday, Charles Goldman of USA Today reports.
Analysis: Dieter has been managing an undisclosed injury since the beginning of training camp. The second-year pro will need to get fully healthy before looking to catch on with another team.
Dieter (undisclosed) was placed on Injured Reserve on Friday, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.
Analysis: Dieter was sidelined throughout training camp with his undisclosed injury. The second-year receiver will now sit out all of 2019, barring he reaches an injury settlement with Kansas City and is released.
Dieter (undisclosed) remained sidelined at Tuesday's practice, Pete Sweeney of ArrowheadPride.com reports.
Analysis: Dieter has been sidelined with an undisclosed injury since the start of camp. He was originally expected to have a good chance at making the final 53-man roster due to his special team skills and close friendship with quarterback Patrick Mahomes. However, there are a plethora of other receivers competing for a depth role at the position, so a return to the field would certainly be advantageous for his chances at securing a spot.
Dieter sat out of Sunday's practice with an undisclosed issue, Brooke Pryor of The Kansas City Star reports.
Analysis: Dieter's injury is still unclear in both nature and severity. The 26-year-old is in a good position to fight for a roster spot when healthy -- given his ability to contribute on offense and special teams -- but he obviously needs to get back on the field first.
Dieter didn't participate Tuesday due to an undisclosed issue, Brooke Pryor of The Kansas City Star reports.
Analysis: Dieter's injury is unclear in both nature and severity. The 26-year-old spent most of 2017 and 2018 on Kansas City's practice squad, but managed to appear in four regular-season games last season while Sammy Watkins nursed a foot injury, recording one catch for 22 yards in that span. Dieter is in a good position to fight for a roster spot when healthy, offering contributions on offense and special teams.
Dieter has a good chance to stick on the 53-man roster, offering value on both offense and special teams, according to Brooke Pryor of The Kansas City Star.
Analysis: A possible suspension for Tyreek Hill further helps Dieter's case, and it doesn't hurt that he's close friends with quarterback Patrick Mahomes. The Alabama product spent most of 2017 and 2018 on Kansas City's practice squad, eventually landing on the active roster last November after Sammy Watkins injured his foot. Dieter logged just 32 offensive snaps and one reception in four regular-season games, but he also played 46 snaps on special teams, showing enough to remain active for the playoffs after Watkins returned. Mecole Hardman and Demarcus Robinson are the top candidates to earn snaps behind Hill/Watkins, but Dieter, Marcus Kemp and Byron Pringle also figure to get their chances this summer.
Dieter snared just one of his three targets for 22 yards over the final five weeks of the regular season after being promoted to the active roster.
Analysis: Dieter did see the field some down the stretch with Sammy Watkins sidelines, playing a combined 32 offensives snaps in the final three games. He also served as a gunner on special teams and may have played well enough to seize an active roster spot in 2019. He remains under contract for at least one more season and will likely need to fight for a job on the 53-man once again.
Dieter was signed to the Chiefs' 53-man roster Sunday, dddd reports.
Analysis: Dieter failed to survive roster cutdowns in September and has since been on the Chiefs' practice squad. The 25-year-old has yet to make his NFL debut, but that could come Monday against the Rams with Sammy Watkins (foot) questionable, although he's unlikely to have an impact offensively regardless.
