WARRENSBURG, Mo. -- Former Central Missouri All-American running back LaVance Taylor has signed a free agent contract with his hometown Kansas City Chiefs.

Taylor signed a free agent deal with the Chiefs on Thursday and will report to training camp in St. Joseph. He was a First Team AP Little All-American last season and earned multiple All-America honors after leading the MIAA in rushing and setting new Central Missouri single-season records in rushing yards and all-purpose yards as well as career marks in all-purpose yards and kickoff returns for touchdowns.

Taylor is a native of Raytown, Missouri where he competed at Raytown High School. He was a five-time All-MIAA player during his career at UCM, earning all-conference accolades as both a running back and a kick returner.
