That's the word from NFL.com's Jason La Canfora:

DJ Hackett working out for the Chiefs tomorrow, according to a league source.

Hackett was a 2004 5th round pick by the Seattle Seahawks. He spent four seasons in Seattle with 2006 being his best season to date. Hackett caught 45 passes for 610 yards and scored four touchdowns that season.

He spent last year with the Carolina Panthers, only playing in two games and catching 13 passes. He missed a lot of time because of toe and knee injury issues.

Hackett would join the Kansas City Chiefs current nine wide receivers, presuming that none of them would get cut if Hackett made the roster. He also recently worked out for the Detroit Lions in late July, in addition to trying out for the Ravens, Bucs and Redskins over the last few months.

He appears to be making the rounds, possibly looking for a better contract than what the previous teams have offered him.

Thoughts on often injured D.J. Hackett joining the Kansas City Chiefs?
