Kansas City Chiefs sign CB Chris Owens, release DT Brandon Moore

The KC Chiefs have signed a cornerback and released a defensive tackle.

The Kansas City Chiefs have made an unusual move and signed a cornerback under 6'0. According to the KC Star's Terez Paylor, the Chiefs have signed CB Chris Owens and released DE Brandon Moore.

The Chiefs don't sign many cornerbacks under 6'0, which I found interesting.

Owens was with the Miami Dolphins last season, so the Chiefs did sign a Dolphins defensive back ... it just wasn't free safety Chris ClemonsOwens was a 2009 third round pick by the Falcons where he stayed for four seasons. He played for the Dolphins and Browns last season. Owens had three interceptions in his first two seasons but none since then. He started three games last season for the Browns.

Moore was signed earlier in the offseason, along with other reserve / futures contracts.

Owens is considered a camp body until he proves us wrong this offseason (which is similar to what we said about Marcus Cooper, so...).

This is a neat play of Owens saving a TD from Percy Harvin:
