The Chiefs hope to improve their receiving group and give their squad more depth with this move in time for the upcoming season.

At 6-foot-1 and 199 pounds, Ty Scott is a native graduate of Missouri State University. He played his first three seasons of collegiate football at Central Michigan before transferring to Missouri State in 2021. Scott showed off his prowess and ability as a receiver while he was a student at Missouri State, significantly enhancing the offense of the squad.

He had a strong season in 2021, hauling in 66 passes for 1,110 yards and eight scores. The following season, Scott maintained his high standards, hauling in 48 passes for 674 yards and five touchdowns. With almost 75% of his offensive snaps being on the outside in the 2022 season, his on-field efforts predominantly positioned him as an outside receiver. The Kansas City Chiefs are probably looking forward to using Scott’s abilities to improve their receiving group and offensive methods in the next season given his demonstrated qualities as a receiver.

Ty Scott is making his second appearance with the Kansas City Chiefs. He signed with the Chiefs as an undrafted free agent in May but was eventually released a few weeks later. The organization has chosen to give the former Missouri State standout another opportunity to demonstrate his talent and promise, while training camp is currently in full flow.
