Chiefs have signed DE Matt Dickerson, who is at practice wearing No. 96 this morning. Waived DE Shalique Calhoun to make space on the 90.— Matt Derrick (@mattderrick) August 8, 2022
Dickerson, 26, first joined the NFL in 2018 as an undrafted free agent out of UCLA. The 6-foot-5, 292-pound defensive lineman spent three seasons with the Titans, appearing in 18 games, collecting 15 tackles (seven solo, one for loss) and a pair of quarterback hits.
He spent 2021’s offseason with the Las Vegas Raiders, but didn’t make the team’s 53-man roster. This offseason, was with the Arizona Cardinals until he was released on July 30.
To make room for Dickerson on their 90-man roster, the Chiefs have waived linebacker Shilique Calhoun, who spent most of the 2021 season on the team’s practice squad.
