In an appearance on SiriusXM NFL Radio this week, Kansas City Chiefs GM Scott Pioli said you can never have too many good cornerbacks on your team. For the second time this week, the KC Chiefs have signed a cornerback. On Monday, it was Stanford Routt and on Friday it was Jacques Reeves.
If Reeves' name doesn't sound familiar, then don't worry. I had to do a little digging, too. He hasn't been in the NFL since the 2009 season with the Houston Texans. He originally broke into the NFL with the Dallas Cowboys in 2004, where he spent four seasons and had 14 starts.
His career numbers, via the Chiefs release: 88 games (35 starts) with 164 tackles (146 solo), six interceptions returned for 145 yards, 45 passes defensed, two forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries. He has 25 career special teams tackles and has returned 13 kickoffs for 199 yards (15.3 avg.).
He's listed at 5'11" and 188 pounds. Also of note: He was a track standout growing and was actually a sprinter at Purdue.
If you're looking for some promise with this signing, Reeves had a big year in 2007 and turned that into a $20 million deal with the Texans the following year. The guy could play at one point in time. He just hasn't done it in two seasons.
