KANSAS CITY, Mo. – A familiar face was among the Chiefs’ latest round of transactions Tuesday.
The Chiefs signed outside Dezman Moses, who played in Kansas City from 2013-15, and rookie safety Peni Vea to contracts.
Terms of the deals were not disclosed.
The 6-2, 240-pound Moses returns after not being re-signed at the start of free agency. He appeared in 26 games the past two seasons with the Chiefs, totaling seven tackles (five solo).
Moses offers experience in the defensive scheme and veteran depth at the outside linebacker position, especially with uncertainty surrounding Justin Houston, who underwent an anterior cruciate ligament procedure on his left knee in mid-February.
The 6-1, 205-pound Vea, a native of Hawaii, played collegiately at UNLV. Vea finished his collegiate career with 328 tackles (202 solo), 4 ½ sacks, four interceptions and 11 passes defensed.
To make room on the roster, the Chiefs waived defensive back Keith Lewis and outside linebacker Efe Obada.
Lewis signed a reserve/future deal in January, while the Chiefs signed Obada to a contract in March.
