Chiefs Sign Two Players, Including a Former Patriot

The Kansas City Chiefs have agreed to terms with two players who are expected to be at practice this afternoon.

LB David Herron is a third year player coming from Michigan State (Yay Big Ten?).  He was originally an undrafted free agent with the Vikings racking up appearances in 16 games.  He also spent one week on the Patriots active roster.

He takes the place of the departed Monty Beisel.

The Chiefs also signed CB Mike Richardson who is a former sixth round pick of the New England Patriots out of Notre Dame.  He's entering his third season and was released by the Patriots in the middle of training camp.

He takes the place of the departed Ricardo Colclough.

Not the most exciting moves since these guys weren't on anyone's radar.  There had been rumors throughout the week that the Chiefs would promote WR Lance Long from the practice squad.  The Chiefs also worked out veteran RT Mark Tauscher recently.

The Chiefs had two roster spots open this morning from all the activity yesterday so now they are at the 53 man limit.
