Breaking: Kansas City Chiefs sign punter Tyler Newsome

Chiefs have signed former Notre Dame punter Tyler Newsome

We are learning that former Notre Dame punter Tyler Newsome, with the best haircut in the NFL has signed with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Here is a little bio of Tyler from NFL.com.

Tyler Newsome is lucky to be alive. He spent 17 days in the hospital after a car accident in May 2012, where he suffered several injuries including a fractured tailbone and ruptured spleen. He spent many months rehabbing those injuries, however, and eventually became an all-state kicker in Georgia.

Notre Dame offered him a punting scholarship before he took over that position as a senior. He redshirted his first season in South Bend and then earned the starting punting (44.5 avg., 21 of 55 inside the 20, eight touchbacks, seven fair catches) and kickoff specialist jobs in 2015 (21 touchbacks on 84 kicks). Newsome focused on punting in the 2016 season (43.5 avg., 16 of 54 punts inside the 20, three touchbacks, seven fair catches), and improved his craft as a junior (43.6 avg., 19 of 63 punts inside the 20, four touchbacks, 17 fair catches). He set a career high with 44.7 yards per kick in 2018, forcing 13 fair catches and placing 19 of his 53 punts inside the 20 yard-line (with nine touchbacks).

Now, he is a Kansas City Chief!!!
