The Kansas City Chiefs have signed former Steelers wide receiver Mathew Sexton to a reserve/future contract for the 2022 season, according to a report by Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.
The move comes with the Steelers set to visit Kansas City on Sunday in the AFC Wild Card playoff, but the contract with Sexton won’t take effect until after the 2021 season ends.
Sexton was signed by the Steelers on March 31 after going undrafted and unsigned in his first pro season in 2020. He played in The Spring League last year before landing with Pittsburgh.
Sexton spent the 2021 offseason with the Steelers, but was cut after training camp and did not land a practice squad spot.
Sexton caught 100 passes for 1,335 yards in his four-year career with the Eagles, averaging 13.4 yards per catch and scoring nine touchdowns. The speedy receiver was also a solid kick returner early in his EMU career, averaging 16.8 yards on 21 returns in 2016 and 2017.
