Schefter: Chiefs Claim WR Chris Chambers Off Waivers

Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting the Kansas City Chiefs have successfully claimed former San Diego Chargers WR Chris Chambers off waivers.

Chambers was released yesterday.  The deadline for waiver claims was at 3:00 PM (CST) today.

The Chiefs will now assume the remainder of Chambers' contract for the year - about $2.4 million.

Chambers was a second round pick by the Miami Dolphins in the 2001 draft.  He had six consistent years in Miami gaining from roughly 700-900 yards every year including one Pro Bowl appearance.

Days before the 2007 trading deadline, the Chargers acquired him in a trade for a second round pick.

The Chiefs had an open roster spot due to the Larry Johnson suspension until November 9th.

Thanks to TigerPride and kchayden for getting it out there.

More coming on this shortly...
