Ivie, 23, originally entered the league out of the University of Florida as seventh-round pick made by the Dallas Cowboys in the 2017 NFL Draft.
Ivie caught on with the Atlanta Falcons practice squad after the Cowboys waived him in 2017, but the Falcons waived him this offseason with an undisclosed injury settlement.
Ivie spent training camp this season with the Seattle Seahawks before he was released as part of the 53-man roster cutdown.
Ivie had a modest career at Florida before joining the pro ranks. His four years in Gainesville were highlighted by his senior season, when he started 10 games, recording 26 tackles, tackles 3.5 for loss, 2.5 sacks and a forced fumble.
Ivie replaces Liner as the only defensive lineman on the Chiefs practice squad.
