Marcus Kemp: Stays with Chiefs

Kemp has signed his tender with the Chiefs, Brooke Pryor of The Kansas City Star reports.

Analysis: Kemp was active for all 16 regular-season games in 2018, logging 36 snaps on offense and 299 on special teams. He might have a shot at the No. 4 wide receiver job after the Chiefs lost Chris Conley earlier this offseason, but it's more likely Kemp sticks in his familiar role on special teams.

Marcus Kemp: Special teams contributor in 2018

Although Kemp appeared in all 16 regular season games for the Chiefs in 2018, nearly all of his work came on special teams.

Analysis: Kemp hauled in just one pass for seven yards on two targets throughout the campaign and he played more than three offensive snaps in a game just twice all season. The second-year wideout did take the field on special teams to the tune of 299 snaps, but he's far from a lock to be on the Chiefs' 53-man roster next season despite being an exclusive rights free agent.

Marcus Kemp: Lands depth receiver role

Kemp has made the Chiefs' 53-man roster, Adam Teicher of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Kemp earned a promotion to the 53-man roster in October of last season, his rookie year, which likely earned him good favor in his bid for a 53-man roster spot. He should serve as a depth option at wide receiver again in 2018 and could contribute on special teams as well.

Marcus Kemp: Receives some first-team reps in practice

Kemp (ankle) mixed in the with the first team a few times during practice Tuesday, Matt Derrick of Chiefs Digest reports.

Analysis: Kemp had been sidelined by an ankle issue during practice last week, but it looks as though he's returned to the fold in short order. He's expected to challenge for a depth role again in 2018, though he only appeared in one game for the Chiefs last season.
