The Chiefs claimed rookie tight end Brian Parker off waivers from the San Diego Chargers, the team announced.

The 6-4, 265-pound Parker entered the league in 2015 as an undrafted free agent out of Albany with San Diego. He finished his college career with 35 catches for 506 yards and four touchdowns.

San Diego waived Parker Saturday as part of roster trimmings to reach the 53-man roster.

Parker joins a tight end corps consisting of Travis Kelce, Demetrius Harris and rookie James O’Shaughnessy.

The Chiefs waived outside linebacker Dezman Moses to make room on the roster to accommodate Parker.

The 6-2, 249-pound Moses entered the league in 2012 as an undrafted free agent out of Tulane with the Green Bay Packers.

Moses joined the Chiefs after being claimed off waivers from Green Bay on Sept. 1, 2013 as part of the transaction known as the Chiefs’ “Second Draft.”

He was part of a series of waiver claims that included safety Ron Parker, defensive lineman Jaye Howard, linebacker James-Michael Johnson, cornerback Marcus Cooper, tight end Sean McGrath and wide receiver Chad Hall.

Moses spent the 2014 season on injured reserve with an elbow injury. He has appeared in 29 career games with six starts, totaling 25 tackles (13 solo), four sacks, two passes defensed, a fumble recovery and six quarterback pressures.
