The Chiefs continue to remake their practice squad in week two.

The Kansas City Chiefs announced more moves to the practice squad with the addition of defensive tackle Jordan Miller and the release of offensive lineman Matt Reynolds.

The moves come on the heels of the release of OL Tommie Draheim earlier on Tuesday after adding Rokevious Watkins. Watkins joined the team's practice squad after serving a one-game suspension. From the team's release on Miller:

Miller (6-1, 316) originally entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Chicago Bears on July 26, 2011. He spent the first 16 games on the Bears practice squad before being signed to the active roster on Dec. 27 for the club's postseason run. He was signed by the Green Bay Packers on Oct. 23, 2012, where he spent time on both the practice squad and active roster. He was a three-year letterwinner at Southern University after joining the program as a walk-on, recording 90 tackles (42 solo), 15.5 sacks, two fumble recoveries and a forced fumble in 31 career games with the Jaguars. Miller prepped at Largo High School in Marlboro, Md., where he lettered in both football and basketball.

Miller is an example of general manager John Dorsey bringing in yet another familiar face. It's common for teams to go with players they're familiar with, and the team has made depth in the trenches a focus for many of the practice squad spots.
