The Kansas City Chiefs have signed safety Sanders Commings.

Commings, a former Westside standout, was the Chiefs’ fifth-round draft pick out of Georgia. He played primarily cornerback in college, starting 35 games and making 154 tackles. But he’s been playing safety for the Chiefs during their first two weeks of organized team activities.

REDSKINS: Robert Griffin III says he cried after his knee surgery and changed his cellphone passcode to the date of the season opener as he began his rehabilitation process.

Griffin says he’s “hashed things out” with coach Mike Shanahan, who was widely criticized for leaving Griffin in the game after the quarterback was injured during the playoff loss to the Seattle Seahawks.
