Devey impressed before being injured in 2018, but has left for the Raiders in free agency

NFL: San Francisco 49ers at Kansas City Chiefs Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

Kansas City Chiefs reserve offensive lineman (and free agent) Jordan Devey has been signed by the Oakland Raiders, per a report from Pro Football Talk.

Devey, 31, entered the league as an undrafted free agent for the Baltimore Ravens in 2013. He spent time with the New England Patriots and the San Francisco 49ers before the Chiefs claimed him on waivers in the spring of 2016. Devey was on and off the practice squad and the roster a number of times for the next three seasons, but in 2018, he started two games for the Chiefs when their offensive line was riddled with injuries.

He caught the respect of Chiefs fans for playing through a painful pectoral tear in the Week 7 game against the Cincinnati Bengals. The injury landed him on injured reserve for the remainder of the season.

In his NFL career, Devey has played in 39 NFL games, starting in 17 of them — most of them for the 49ers in 2015.
