KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Chiefs claimed guard Jordan Devey off waivers from the San Francisco 49ers, according to Monday’s NFL Transactions report.

The 6-6, 328-pound Devey originally entered the league in 2013 as an undrafted free agent out of Memphis with the Baltimore Ravens.

He spent time with the New England Patriots in 2014 before being traded to the 49ers in August 2015.

San Francisco waived Devey on May 6, leading to his arrival with the Chiefs.

Devey has appeared in 22 career games with 13 starts.

He provides depth as the Chiefs are set for competition at the left guard position left vacant by the departures of Ben Grubbs, Jeff Allen and Paul Fanaika.

To make room on the roster for Devey, the Chiefs waived offensive lineman Michael Liedtke.

The 6-3, 310-pound Liedtke, who played collegiately at Illinois State, spent time on Kansas City’s practice squad in 2015 before signing a reserve/future contract on Jan. 17.
