Former Rebel DT Jerrell Powe re-signs with Chiefs

The Ole Miss fan favorite is getting another shot in Kansas City.

If you're looking for some good Ole Miss Rebels news amidst your Egg Bowl hangover, look no further. Former Rebel defensive tackle Jerrell Powe re-signed with the Kansas City Chiefs on Wednesday, ending a three month wait in the NFL's unemployment line.

Powe's initial two-year tenure with the Chiefs was relatively unremarkable, so it would have been easy to miss the fact he was cut by the team in September. After going in the sixth round of the 2011 draft, he recorded just six tackles in 10 games and failed to crack a stacked defensive line rotation that currently features Tamba Hali, Tyson Jackson and Dontari Poe (no relation, unless the W just got left out of his birth certificate /obligatoryilliteracyjoke'd).

While I'm sure Jerrell enjoyed a lazy few months full of fish fries and weekends in Oxford (yours truly spotted him strolling about the Grove prior to the Arkansas game), he's expectedly glad to be back with former Ole Miss teammates Dexter McCluster and Kendrick Lewis in Kansas City.

It will be interesting to see how much playing time Powe sees down the stretch of the 2013 season. It's hard to expect that he's in game shape, but injuries along the Chiefs' defensive front could open up opportunities. Hali and Jackson have been slowed by medical issues over the past couple weeks and defensive end Mike DeVito was knocked out of last Sunday's game against Denver with a knee sprain.

Here's to wishing a good Rebel and the namesake of this scribe's handle the best of luck during his NFL comeback.
