In a pair of corresponding roster moves, the Chiefs placed tight end Sean McGrath on the reserve-did not report list and waived offensive guard Rokevious Watkins.

Schiltz, 24, is listed at 6 feet 4 and 245 pounds. He was signed by the Texans as an undrafted free agent in June 2013 after a senior season at Emporia State in which he had 44 catches for 560 yards and four touchdowns.

He was released by the Texans before the season but landed on the Titans' practice squad, where he spent the remainder of the season.

The Chiefs were down to only four tight ends after McGrath, 26, decided to retire.
