RIVER FALLS, Wis. (AP) - The Kansas City Chiefs have signed defensive end Tyson Jackson, the team's first-round draft pick.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed Friday. Jackson was in River Falls and headed to the practice field to take the team's conditioning test.
Jackson, the third overall pick from LSU, is expected to help an anemic Chiefs pass rush that set the all-time NFL record for fewest sacks with 10 last season. Jackson had 18.5 sacks and 122 tackles in 53 games at LSU.
The Chiefs waived linebacker Weston Dacus to make room on the roster.
