Fortson signed with the Chiefs' practice squad Sunday, Sam McDowell of The Kansas City Star reports.
Analysis: Fortson had a solid training camp with the Chiefs but couldn't secure a spot on the 53-man roster, as the team is loaded with receiver depth.
Fortson has made a number of impressive plays during the Chiefs' training camp, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports.
Analysis: Fortson certainly stands out at 6-foot-6, 230 pounds, and has used his frame to make a number of tough catches on a daily basis. He's pushing to make the 53-man roster, but it may be a tough hill to climb contending with the same group of wideouts that comprised the Chiefs' 53-man roster last season.
Fortson signed a reserve/future contract with the Chiefs on Tuesday, according to the NFL's official transaction report.
Analysis: Fortson spent time with the Chiefs during the preseason and then spent the season on the practice squad. He'll now get a chance to develop in the Chiefs system this offseason as he looks to crack the 53-man roster in the fall.
Fortson caught two of three targets for 38 yards and a touchdown in Thursday night's 27-20 preseason loss to the Packers.
Analysis: Fortson went for a game-long reception of 36 yards, but his score came off a two-yard catch from Kyle Shurmur toward the end of the second quarter. Despite those contributions, Fortson probably still hasn't done enough to make the Chiefs' roster ahead of the regular season.
