Tracy Sprinkle is getting another opportunity in the NFL.

The former Ohio State defensive tackle is getting that opportunity from the Kansas City Chiefs, he and his agent announced Sunday on Twitter.

Sprinkle has been invited to participate in the Chiefs' rookie minicamp, where he will work out alongside the Chiefs' draft picks, undrafted free agent signings and other tryout players with the potential to earn a contract from the team if he performs well. A source close to Sprinkle told Eleven Warriors that he also has workouts lined up with other NFL teams if he does not sign in Kansas City.

The newest opportunity for Sprinkle to compete for an NFL roster spot comes one day following the conclusion of the 2019 NFL draft, and less than one month after the folding of the Alliance of American Football, in which he played for the Atlanta Legends.

A team captain for the Buckeyes in 2017, Sprinkle spent last offseason with the Carolina Panthers after going undrafted in 2018, but was released prior to the start of the regular season.

After being released from the Panthers, Sprinkle joined forces with three of his former Ohio State defensive linemates to develop a clothing line, How She Gone Eat, which officially launched in February.

Now, after putting his football skills back on display in the short-lived AAF, Sprinkle is getting another shot to try to earn a spot on an NFL roster.
